Help protect children

We protect girls and boys against child abuse, exploitation and violence

The need to keep children safe

Our approach to ending violence against children protects them today and empowers them for tomorrow. We do this by equipping children, families, faith leaders, schools and various levels of government, with the tools to address the root causes of violence against children.

We speak out on issues like child marriage, child soldiers, child labour, violence and abuse, raising awareness, influencing laws and amplifying children's voices. With your support, we work in the most dangerous places, with communities and local and national government at all levels, empowering communities to build a safety net of loving and caring people to protect children and young people, prevent harm, and ensure that those who are harmed receive the help they need to recover.

The fight for child safety faces great challenges:
