Empowering countries to protect children.

2 min readJun 15, 2023


Our mission is simple yet profound: Protect children from exploitation, sexual abuse, and risk of going missing.

That’s why we’ve created Multisectoral Response and Capacities Assessments (MRC) to put the best interests and rights of the child at the forefront.

These assessments serve as a blueprint, enabling countries to develop effective national responses and enhance the efficiency of investigations, management, and resolution of Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (CSEA) and missing children’s cases.

With a laser focus on providing trauma-informed support to the victims of these cases and a relentless commitment to prevention, we are changing the landscape of child protection.

Join us in building a safer world for children. Your support will empower nations to build robust national systems, improve investigations, and find children faster.

Together, we can be the voice that echoes through the darkness, bringing hope and protection to missing and exploited children everywhere.

The International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC) is a non-governmental organization working to make the world a safer place for all children by defending against child sexual exploitation, abuse, and the risk of going missing. ICMEC coordinates with partners around the world to develop research, technologies, and educational resources to aid in the search and recovery of children who are missing, fight child sexual exploitation, and empower caring professionals, institutions, and communities to safeguard children from all forms of sexual abuse.
