A call to action to end violence against children

Remarkable efforts were made by members of the Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC) in 2016- 2017. Their grassroots efforts, carried out in more than 43 countries around the world, were inspired by diverse faith practices and a strong belief that every child is priceless in dignity and deserves to grow up safe and sound. GNRC members tackle a variety of issues that cause suffering for children, including poverty, injustice, and exploitation. All of these issues are directly or indirectly linked to violence against children.

One billion children around the world are still exposed to various forms of physical and sexual violence. In 2012 alone, close to 95,000 children between the ages of 15- 19 suffered violent deaths.

It is time for the world to take a stand—to draw a line and say “no more” to this most pernicious of evils; the perpetration of violence against the most vulnerable among us, our children.

This is why the Fifth Global Forum of the GNRC, taking place in Panama City in May 2017, will focus on Ending Violence Against Children: Faith Communities in Action. In the spirit of “All for Children”, we hope to support the world’s people of faith as they take the initiative in finding new ways for diverse actors to work together to eliminate all forms of violence against children.
