Sweetie for Terres des Hommes

Finally I can announce a project I worked on last year, the “Sweetie” campaign for Terres des Hommes.


Sweetie is a completely virtual girl, driven in realtime by an operator, that can go into public chat rooms and interact with predators of Webcam Child Sex Tourism.

In two months we caught in the act and identified 1,000 predators from 71 countries. Since then there have been several convictions in several different countries.
Governments were urged to act after the world witnessed us handing over our short movie, research findings, and the 1,000 names to Interpol.
