The Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism has created the policy against sexual exploitation of children and adolescents (ESNNA). The ESNNA code and our tour operator agency have an agreement for joint actions to prevent and eradicate this problem.
LET’S PROTECT OUR CHILDREN OF EXPLOITATION IN TOURISM TRIPS
The ESNNA Program and Our Commitment Said policy program for social development and protection of vulnerable populations is a broad and complex initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur). It consists of raising awareness and training the entire sector in our country with the aim of preventing and finally eliminating the sexual exploitation of minors. We have recently obtained the CALTUR – Level 2 Certification, also from Mincetur, and we are aligned with the most demanding government regulations for optimal tourism quality. Specifically in the case of authorized and certified tourism agencies such as COHERENCE TRIPS, the ESNNA program requests adherence to a Code of Conduct, which is signed with Mincetur. It requires the company to disclose this initiative, its rules and objectives. Also, that adequate training of staff and suppliers be carried out. Of course, the company is committed to working following all the requirements of the Code. Unfortunately, in Peru child trafficking is a serious problem, but it is being fought. By carrying out ethically responsible tourism, our tour company Coherence Trips brings development, economic activity and improvement of the standard of living in the destinations we visit. Along these lines, our commitment to the ESNNA program also means that we help reduce and eradicate the sexual exploitation of minors.
Concrete Actions – ESNNA Code Adherence to the Code of Conduct of the ESNNA program commits us to constantly put into practice a series of actions that are carried out and reinforced as part of the activities. Our office staff, as well as the logistics staff (guides, cooks, drivers, leaders) are already duly trained to contribute to the Code of Conduct. The tourist, whether national or foreign, is not offered in any way nor is any request regarding sex tourism with children or adolescents granted, for both ethical and legal reasons. Along the same lines, we act together with our associates (hotels, restaurants, etc. and all of their staff) so that the objectives and commitments with the ESNNA program are met in all sectors and stages of the tourism services that we provide. All of us at Coherence Trips and also the partners in our operations are committed to enforcing the ESNNA Code of Conduct and reporting to the authorities when necessary. The actions of the ESNNA code and our company Coherence Trips stand out and have priority within our social responsibility policies. We seek tourism to be an activity that only benefits the region and the country, in accordance with the provisions of the corporate mission, vision and values.
