Children expressed their hopes for a peaceful world where there is no violence against children at World Vision’s ‘It takes a world to end violence against children in Timor-Leste now!’ campaign launch in Baucau municipality on 14 November.
Some 80 children from seven schools, representatives from the education sector and Baucau municipality, the National Director for Children’s Rights, a religious leader, national police, the Human Rights Ombudsman and development partners attended the event and committed to ending violence against children in Timor-Leste.
Fourteen children participated in a drawing competition at the event. They used their artistic flair to draw images of their vision of a happy society.
The event was support by KOICA Timor-Leste.
