Toward a world free from violence on children


Violence against children takes place in every setting, including those where children should be safest – in schools, in care institutions and at home. Like a contagion, violence spreads through communities and is transmitted
to future generations. Across regions and countries, it threatens children’s survival and development, erodes family structures, jeopardizes education, generates social insecurity and consumes precious national resources.
