Keep children like
Leinani safe at home.

Household violence is on the rise

Leinani should have been safe at home.

On a recent visit to Leinani's house, local ChildFund staff members observed her grandmother disciplining her with a heavy stick. 

You're worthless! And so disrespectful!" Leinani's grandmother shouted, as the stick came down heavily onto the young girl's backside. Leinani yelled back, making her grandmother even more angry.

"When her grandmother picked up a big stone, I was so scared," explained Selima, ChildFund Kiribati staff member. "Maybe she noticed us watching but, thankfully, she dropped the stone and walked away." 

With your help, we will reach the most vulnerable families in Kiribati.
