  1. Introduction

“Islamic Relief believes that all children have a right to personal dignity and protection from abuse and it recognizes the special responsibility and duty of care it bears to create a safe environment for children within the projects and programs it manages and supports. The interests of child safety and protection should be paramount to any other interest which might compromise it”.

  1. Background and Problem Statement

For Islamic Relief, there is no greater priority than ensuring work has the greatest positive impact on those we  served. Inspired by Islamic faith and guided by islamic values, IR envisages a caring world where communities are empowered to become agents of change, social obligations are fulfilled and people respond as one to the suffering of others. Children are the heart of every community, and have been at the core of Islamic Relief’s work over the past 34 years. In working with vulnerable children of all ages and abilities  around the world, Islamic Relief takes seriously its responsibility to uphold the protection of children, uphold the rights of children and use Islamic teachings to provide safeguards to protect children from all forms of harm.

Since CoH for Child Protection is a innovative approach as one of the primary project models to complement CP national efforts, while also intentionally mobilizings and engaging faith leaders to address CP issues.
