"Children cannot and will not wait.

Their childhood must be protected"

- Kailash Satyarthi

The India Child Protection Fund (ICPF) partners with Law Enforcement Agencies across various states to combat online child sexual exploitation and abuse (OCSEA) which encompasses, sextortion, grooming, and other forms of digital harm with a focus on promoting both digital and online safety of children.

Our efforts focus on empowering specialized police units at a systemic level, in order to facilitate a swift and effective response to OCSEA

We Believe

Children have the right to a safe and happy exploration of online platforms, without the risk of predators or fear of harmful content.

Theory of Change

To bring about the existence of a thoroughly secure cyberspace, a 360° systems approach is required. A multi-pronged strategy is employed in states with a high prevalence of crime against children, focused on Prevention and Deterrence, Detection and Reporting, and Response and Support.

The first approach targets setting up of dedicated CSAM units within LEAs and aims to improve their efficiency by enabling them with tools, techniques, and tactics. The result is a higher capacity within cybercrime units to detect, disrupt and prosecute offenders. Another line of action follows organizing awareness campaigns in communities and schools through traditional means as well as social media. This is done in order to create virtuous cycles of both increased reporting and deterrence to potential perpetrators. With the intention of creating a system where all stakeholders understand and perform their roles, we also advocate for increased accountability of intermediaries such as social media platforms. Through our partners we ensure proper systems are in place for victims to access legal assistance, mental health and rehabilitation support which allows for the healing of victims.
