Every sector and part of the community can make a difference in making society safer for children. Violence against children is chilling and distressing. Child trauma has a terrible cost not only to the children but also to the adults they become, whose lives it wrecks. Ending abuse exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence and torture against children.
Child abuse is not just physical: it includes; sexual, psychological maltreatment, emotional, negligence from parents.
Both words and actions can inflict deep, lasting wounds:
- Head trauma
- Low self-esteem
Children themselves are engaged in advancing their own rights, Freedom of expression, giving children a voice is a key process to enjoying their rights. Children should be protected and catered for; we should always stand to be their shield. Children rights should be fast-tracked and firmly entrenched in the society.
