Meet the 10-yeard-old who has helped catch thousands of pedophiles.

Every day, this 10-year-old Filipina girl – named ‘Sweetie’ – helps identify pedophiles from all over the world. Sweetie logs onto her computer and men flock to her in the hope that she will perform sexual acts for them via her webcam.

What the pedophiles don’t know? Sweetie isn’t real.

She is a computer-generated image that children’s rights group ‘Terre Des Hommes’ in the Netherlands have created to put an end to child exploitation.

Webcam child sex tourism is a new phenomenon that is spreading across the globe. Men from first-world countries are paying children in poor countries to perform sexual acts for them online. The Sweetie Project has so far proven to be an effective method of trapping these men in the act.
