Help keep children safe and protected.

All children should grow up free from violence and exploitation

Yet there are one billion children around the world who are victims of violence.

For the one billion children who experience violence and exploitation, our child protection work is critical. As members of the ChildFund Alliance we work to ensure that global goals to end violence are translated into concrete, concerted and definitive actions in the communities where we work.
