Sign the Pledge: End Violence Against Children Worldwide
Every five minutes a child dies as a result of violence. An estimated 120 million girls and 73 million boys have been victims of sexual violence, and almost one billion children are subjected to physical punishment on a regular basis.
Every day, in every country, millions of children are victims of violence in their homes, schools and communities.
But violence against children isn't an inevitable part of life. It's preventable.
For us to end violence against children, we need the participation of every stakeholder: governments, humanitarian organizations, civil society, the private sector, and more.
But we also need you...these children need you. We need individual citizens like you to get involved and be active in the movement to end violence against children. That’s why we’re asking you to sign this petition and pledge your commitment to ending violence against children.
Do your part. Stand with us and with the international community to support the end of violence against children. But more importantly, stand with these children as their voice to hold governments accountable.
By signing this pledge, you’re taking the first step to affirm the right of a child to grow up free from violence and exploitation. Take action today!
