we advocate to end violence against children. We combine our programs with efforts to encourage local and national leaders to prioritize the protection and well-being of children.
Our programs address a wide range of child protection issues, including combating the harmful practices of child labor ; unnecessary institutionalization; violence in schools. Homes and communities; corporal punishment; child marriage; and lack of birth registration , among others. Violence against children not only harms children, but it also undermines progress in other areas, including health, education and economic livelihoods.
