(7/4/2005)

A two-day program of specialized training for hotel management and child minders will be held in Bali on July 13 and 14, 2005, at the Bali Dynasty Hotel in South Kuta.

The free-of-charge seminars conducted by the Australian non-governmental organization Child Wise, is aimed at preventing the sexual abuse of children and creating a safer and more transparent environment in which people are recruited to work with children.

Sponsored by Child Wise and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the seminar will provide practical steps to reduce opportunities for children to be abused or harmed while in custodial care. Based on the award-winning "Choose with Care"® program of Child Wise, the two-day course covers:

• Increased awareness of the potential risks to children whilst in custodial care.

• Strategies to reduce risk, including a Child Protection Policy and a Code of Conduct.

• The development of minimum standards for Child Care at Bali Hotels.

• The Development of individual action plans for participating hotels, including follow up training scheduled for December 2005.

Divided into two full days of training, day one is designed for hotel managers and human resource personnel while day two is for supervisors and staff of "Kids Clubs" and babysitting services and those involved in the care and entertainment of children.

Parents Need to Educate Themselves

Child Wise encourages parents planning to place their children in child care to do some research into the standards of child care provided at the club or organisation. Child Wise has prepared a booklet specifically for parents and caregivers to assist in making informed decisions by asking relevant questions to establish how "child safe" an organisation, program or club is. This booklet can be downloaded free at [ www.childwise.net ]

Government Support

Recent press statements by Thamrin B. Bachry, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism's Deputy for Capacity Building and International Cooperation, underline strong official support for Child Wise training programs, citing such training as an important part of the Government's effort to halt those cases of sexual abuse of children caused by tourism visitors to Indonesia.

According to Bachri, "this is important to protect children for sexual exploitation in tourism settings by equipping front liners, such as hotel staff, restaurant and karaoke workers and even taxi drivers to refuse visitors seeking sex with children."

Those who prey sexually on children face a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison under Indonesian law.
