At the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), we believe in taking a leadership role, in staking out the claim that every child deserves a safe childhood. We advocate for changes that will better protect children around the world. We complement that advocacy by training first responders such as police, teachers, medical personnel, social workers and parents.
With regional presence in North and South America, and Asia, and with a committed international Board of Directors, we have developed partnerships, both formal and informal, with hundreds of organizations around the world – all in furtherance of our goal of creating a global community to make the world a safer place for all children.
For almost 20 years, ICMEC has been identifying gaps in the global community’s ability to properly protect children from abduction, sexual abuse and exploitation and expertly assembling the people, resources and tools needed to fill those gaps.
ICMEC works every day to make the world safer for children by eradicating child abduction, sexual abuse and exploitation. To this end, ICMEC’s mission is to advocate, train and collaborate to protect the world’s children.
