Violence is the world's worst crime against children. It affects around 1.7 billion children every year, in every country, city and community. Violence against children is a thief that robs kids of their childhoods, dignity, human rights and God-given potential. It costs trillions of dollars and slows economic growth. But it doesn’t need to be this way. There are proven solutions and we believe, with your help, that a world without violence against children is possible. World Vision’s campaign, “It takes a world to end violence against children”, is igniting movements of people committed to keeping children safe from harm.
