What is an INHOPE Funding Partner?

INHOPE’s Annual Funding Partners are vital to our network in fighting online Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). Their support has enabled the strategic expansion work currently undertaken by INHOPE staff and contributed to the training and technical support of more than 200 analysts in 43 countries around the world in 2020.

The value of collaborations for us

The distribution and scale of online CSAM continues to grow on a global scale. In response to this ongoing challenge, your support can help us pursue four main avenues:

  1. Technology development, including ongoing work on ICCAM, our secure platform used to collect, exchange and classify reports of CSAM
  2. Network expansion, focussing in the major internet usage expansion zones: Asia Pacific, South Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa
  3. Capacity building, enabling analysts to act as the frontline against online CSAM effectively and safely
  4. Political and legislative engagement, working to shape the future of EU and national policy in a way that keeps children safe online

How our work benefits you

What do our current partners say?

'INHOPE is a vital partner in our collective effort to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse online. We are delighted to support INHOPE’s extraordinary work across the globe, making public reporting mechanisms available to help stop the spread of illegal imagery online.
