A Familiar Face: Violence in the lives of children and adolescents

  • Published: December 01, 2017

And all forms of violence experienced by children, regardless of the nature or severity of the act, are harmful. Beyond the unnecessary hurt and pain it causes, violence undermines children’s sense of self-worth and hinders their development.

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.
