A global network committed to protecting the world's most vulnerable children from exploitation and abuse
Home > About us

Keeping Children Safe was established in 2001 by a group of leading humanitarian relief and development charities in the context of emerging reports that children were being abused by aid and development workers in emergency camps in West Africa and within their own organisations.

Keeping Children Safe represents a commitment by organisations worldwide to protect children by developing and promoting a set of robust and comprehensive International Child Safeguarding Standards that all organisations can and should follow.
