Since 2005, the IA CP IMS has been used to support child protection programming in 20 countries by UNICEF, Save the Children and IRC. It is a practical, field level tool that supports effective and timely responses to individual vulnerable children. If you share our mission, and strongly believe you can contribute then join us, and we'll give you every opportunity to succeed. We look forward to hearing from you.
