Support UNICEF's Child Protection Programs
Every child has a right to protection from violence, abuse and exploitation. A troubling UNICEF report, A Familiar Face: Violence in the Lives of Children and Adolescents reveals that children worldwide experience violence across all stages of childhood, often at the hands of people they trust.
- Close to 300 million children (3 in 4) between the ages of 2 and 4 experience violent discipline — physical punishment and/or psychological abuse — on a regular basis.
- Worldwide, around 15 million adolescent girls aged 15 to 19 have experienced forced sex in their lifetime.
- Every 7 minutes, somewhere in the world, an adolescent is killed by an act of violence.
