It takes a world to
End violence against children

Over 1 billion children are affected by violence.

It destroys their dignity, their rights, their potential and their future.

And it costs the world US$7 trillion a year.

We’re relentlessly taking action to end violence against children - highlighting when it occurs, empowering young people to speak out and holding those responsible to account.

Be part of our global campaign.

Together we can make a safer world for children.
