The Global Missing Children’s Network 2020 Impact Report
As we reflect on 2020, the strength and compassion of our global community of child defenders has never been more apparent.
The global pandemic has been especially devastating for children around the world – isolated at home and separated from traditional safety nets and guardians like teachers, classmates, and healthcare providers. The pandemic also provided us a glimpse of what isolation feels like – physically, mentally, and emotionally. This has deepened our commitment to protect children through fostering new connections with, and delivering innovative support to, the caseworkers and law enforcement professionals who keep children safe.
ICMEC believes that we all share the responsibility to safeguard children. We know we cannot be successful in tackling this monumental issue if we act alone. That’s why we have worked over the last two decades to build a global community equipped with the tools, training, and resources to protect our children.
In our 2020 impact report, we will celebrate what we have been able to achieve through our collective commitment to protecting the safety and well-being of all children.
Together, we are building a safer world for children.
