Voices of Children and Young People has been our most important report for many years now, a yearly updated picture of where in the world children and young people are confronted with violence, abuse and mistreatment…
From 18-20 of September, I attended the Ninth Regional Consultation of Child Helplines in Africa.
Nearly half of the world’s population consists of young people, but over 25% are below the age of fourteen¹.
We have all been horrified by accounts of victims and witnesses to the recent hurricanes in the United States and the Caribbean, and by the terrible floods in South Asia. Our hearts go out to everyone affected.
It was a pleasure to represent Child Helpline International at an important panel¹ on Violence against children on the move: from a continuum of violence to a continuum of protection, held in Mexico City. My presentation focused on how child helplines are an important actor in solving the issue!
Our aim is to set up a sustainable and effective service for children and young people in need of care and protection in Benin. Together with UNICEF Benin, we support the Government in Benin to set up a child helpline in the country.
