Support our work against violence and sexual abuse of children
The signs are rarely this obvious, but an estimated one in five girls and one in ten boys globally has been subjected to sexual abuse. Why don’t we speak up about something that affects so many? Silence is the perpetrator’s best friend. Help us break it!
