“KINSA, in partnership with the VGT, is committed to enhancing global capability and capacity to address online child sexual exploitation.
Because of the global nature of this crime, it is vital that we assist our fellow law enforcement officers in developing nations and non-VGT countries to enhance their capabilities to conduct investigations, crime prevention and successful prosecutions. The strategy being employed by KINSA is an excellent platform to initiate and carry out the VGT mission"
IAN M. QUINN,Chair of the Virtual Global Taskforce and Head of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Cyber Crimes Center
"KINSA training has empowered the South African Police Service to effectively investigate Internet Child Exploitation crimes and join the global battle against child pornography."
MAJOR GENERAL VUSI NYALUNGA, Head of Leadership, Management and International Development, South African Police Service
“Communities are collaborating to ensure that children can live and grow in a safe society. Although the police have an important role in solving the problem, they cannot do so without the dedicated work of organizations such as KINSA. KINSA has stepped up to the plate time and again to ensure that the best training and investigative support is available to police officers throughout the world. This, to me is the true definition of collaboration.”
JOHN BILINSKI, Superintendent Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Officer in Charge of the Canadian Coordination Center for Missing and Exploited Children
“The arrests of several child pornography offenders in South Africa in 2013 confirms KINSA’s enhancement of the capacity of South African law enforcement agents for the effective investigation and prosecution of online child predators; making South African Police Services part of the global fight against child pornography.
The fact that, following news of such arrests, several popular magazines in South Africa published articles about the “real dangers of online pornography” and the growing problem of the online sexual abuse and exploitation of children, also confirms KINSA’s contribution to the raising of awareness of the need for the public to join in the protection, rescuing and healing of victims of online “child terrorists".
IYAVAR CHETTY, Director KINSA Africa
"Kinsa plays a vital role in educating the public, politicians and police about something most of us would prefer to ignore: the dangers of sexual predators on the Internet.
Kinsa is helping to protect our children and make the web safe for all - a tough challenge that deserves our support."

"A year ago I did not know your organization existed. Today, I am incredibly thankful that it does.
The next time you get disgusted with your job, or disheartened with what you see, or wonder if any of what you do makes a difference - know that it does. That here in our small town - there are three parents who Thank God every day - with holidays approaching - instead of turning away - calling it a night - heading home...you kept at it - until you found the identity of a little girl.
Your intervention rescued our children from his horrors. Thank you...for not giving up."
"Thank you very much for your work. If it helps, I want to assure you that at least some of the victims will go on to have a normal life like me.
Now I have a baby girl. Please protect her form the kind of people who once harmed me.
Again, Thank You!"
"I never realized the extent of the problem of child pornography in our country until we attended the course. I was amazed to see that people from small little towns in my province were involved in exchanging child abuse images.
As a result of this I have persuaded the Task Team in KwaZulu, Natal that we need to focus more attention as a forum on child pornography in our province next year. The training also increased my knowledge of the offender and their characteristics which will assist me to guide investigators who are less experienced in recognizing stages of grooming where there are multiple victims for example."
Dawn Coleman, South African National Prosecution Authority
"The training has helped not only me but all the children of Malawi.
Most of the children I have interviewed could be free to reveal their problems easily because of the tips I got from the training. I have already visited 12 schools to sensitize the children on how they can be on the safest side. I have visited five villages to sensitize parents who like sending their children to work in town because these are the children who can be easily victimized because of their vulnerability. I have been transferred to the Regional Office now and it’s my belief that rolling out the project can be easier than at the station level."
Dorothy Chingaipe, Malawi National Police Service
"Thank you for your assistance and the excellent training. Your organization has assisted me in ensuring better services are given to victims.
Your commitment to the fight against this type of crime inspires me. I have been conducting child pornography investigations over the past four years and have had at least nine convictions in my cases. I am hoping more will be done towards policing of child pornography. Your training will be put to excellent use."
Kessie Gounder, South African Police Service
"Let me first of all thank you for the knowledge I acquired which is bearing much fruit in as far as sensitizing the communities is concerned . We have spoken to more than 300 children on various issues such as Child Trafficking, Sexual abuse and I have also made them aware of the characteristics of the paedophiles and so far I have seen that with this knowledge you imparted we are definitely going to make a difference.
