Based on this framework, each member works out his/her responsibilities to achieve the goal of the organization.We recognize that child abuse and exploitation happen in all countries and societies around the world. Trying to define it as a world phenomenon is still difficult because of the vast cultural, religious, social, political, legal and economic differences that children experience. In order to prevent child abuse, it is crucial that we as an organization reach a common understanding as to what child abuse is and in which circumstances our policies and procedures apply. Through this policy we want to positively influence the practices of ICDC families, beneficiary families, and the families of our staff.
