A. Our History

Child Welfare League Foundation (CWLF) commenced missing children service in 1992. Police departments were the only units providing this service before than. Thus, CWLF built a network of governmental authorities, nongovernmental organizations and parents of missing children, and set up Missing Children Searching Committee. The governmental authorities included community centers, household registration offices and departments of police, education and legal affairs.

Searching for missing children and teenagers is a very complicated issue, as it a crisis to both children and their parents. Therefore, Provincial Government established the Search Team for Missing Children in Taiwan, which integrated resources of different departments in 1997. Provincial Government and CWLF cooperated and set up Missing Children Data Resource Center in the following year. In the year of 2000, Children's Bureau, Ministry of the Interior started to co-operate the Center with CWLF due to the reinvention of government. This extensive network effectively raised the rate of successfully finding missing minors and prevented more families from losing their children.

From years of experience searching for children and teenagers, CWLF observed that this issue is not merely related individual families, but also to diverse social problems. Missing minors could be victims of trafficking, children without registered residence, run-away internet users or dropouts from schools. There is much that you and I can do for these missing and run-away minors.
