About me

Maaike Pekelharing

I have my masters degree in child development at the University of Amsterdam. After working for the ministry of Justice I continued my carreer at the Dutch hotline against child sexual abuse. I have worked there for more than 10 years. Besides my work as an analist I coordinated the helpline. This helpline aims to support children who have become a victim of online sexual abuse such as shame sexting and sextortion. Due to this, I have a lot of knowledge on prevention and combatting child sexual abuse. I educate, train and advice people about online and offline sexual child abuse. Being a huge fan of sports I also aim for a safe sports environment for children.. Therefore I work for for KNVB, NOC*NSF and Gehanidcaptensport Nederland. For more information about my prjects in sports, please visit the website (Safer Sports).
