New global data expose acute prevalence of violence against children: UNICEF
The largest-ever compilation of data on violence against children shows the staggering extent of physical, sexual and emotional abuse -- and reveals the attitudes that perpetuate and justify violence, keeping it ‘hidden in plain sight’ in every country and community in the world. The UNICEF report “Hidden in Plain Sight” draws on data from 190 countries, documenting violence in places where children should be safe: their communities, schools and homes.

Major birth and civil registration project to reach thousands in Nampula
Four-year-old Mariza Iussufo is perhaps not fully aware of the life-changing event that happened to her today, when the enthusiastic crowd at Namachilo community suddenly turned silent as her name was called out. As she quickly replied “yes” with her tiny and delicate voice, her proud father lovingly nudged her forward to retrieve her birth certificate from the Nampula Governor’s representative. As she grows up and enjoys the benefits of the document she held in her hands, Mariza will surely one day understand that her right to be recognized with a legal name and nationality had just been fulfilled.
