Innocence in Danger works worldwide to protect children from sexual abuse wherever it is found. In the UK we are doing campaigns to teach the public about the UN Convention on Children’s Rights to empower their awareness. We have a helpline for legal free guidance.
An international, non-profit association created by a group of citizens on 15 April 1999, at the initiative of the UNESCO Director-General, Federico Mayor, and under the presidency of Ms Homayra Sellier, in response to the recommendations of the UNESCO expert meeting convened in January 1999 on Sexual Abuse of Children, Child Pornography and Pedophilia on the Internet, in order to pursue the objectives of the Action Plan adopted by the experts to combat sexual abuse of children.
Innocence in Danger operates throughout the world, with partners who share the same objectives. IID thus brings together militants, Internet specialists, jurists, political decision-makers, businessmen, media and national action groups to sensitize world opinion on the increasing problems of paedo-criminality.
Innocence in Danger represents an action force to sensitize and catalyze, educate and inform governmental and non-governmental bodies, European and international intergovernmental bodies, business enterprises, and the general public – schools, community associations, the youth. Aside from those persons explicitly listed on our website as officials of the bureau of Innocence in Danger associations in France, Switzerland, Germany, USA and Colombia, no one has the right to make any declaration in the name of Innocence in Danger, nor to organize any manifestation of whatever nature under penalty of the law.
Since 15 April 2000, on which date Innocence in Danger was formalized and operated independently of any other organization, its choice of partners and projects to support or put into action emanate solely from the authority of the national Innocence in Danger associations under the control of Innocence in Danger Foundation.
