  • ICMEC’s Global Educator Centre for Excellence partners with the International Task Force on Child Protection, the U.S. Department of State, and regional education associations to provide resources, training, and support to educators and school personnel in thousands of schools across the world to combat child sexual abuse and exploitation.

The Koons Family Institute on International Law & Policy

  • Since 2009, The Koons Family Institute has hosted more than 330 research interns and volunteers, resulting in more than 82,000 hours of research.
  • Since Child Sexual Abuse Material: Model Legislation & Global Review was first released in 2006, 150 countries have refined or implemented new anti-child sexual abuse material laws.

Financial Coalitions Against Child Sexual Exploitation

  • Our Financial Coalitions in the US and Asia Pacific fight against the online sale and dissemination of child sexual exploitation materials and live on-demand sexual abuse of children via video platforms. As a result of its efforts, the use of credit cards to purchase child sexual abuse content online has been virtually eliminated globally.
