Islamic Relief believes all children have a right to personal dignity and protection from abuse and recognises the special duty of care it has to create a safe environment for children within its projects and programmes.

We train our staff in how to respond to situations of child abuse, and are developing faith-based approaches to engage the communities with whom we work.

Islamic Relief works in different areas to protect children so they can enjoy a proper childhood and experience joy:

  •  Safeguarding children in our programmes
  • Research and advocacy
  • Engaging faith communities
  • Combatting harmful practices
  • Educating for the future
  • Building children’s resilience
  • Protecting children in emergencies
