Ending violence against children is possible
Watch to hear what youth around the world have to say to world leaders about the issue
It has been 30 years since the Convention on the Rights of the Child was ratified, but there is still much to do to end violence against children. That was one of the topics discussed at this year’s annual High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) held in New York this week.
As members of ChildFund Alliance, Christian Children’s Fund of Canada is included in their Building Momentum report, released this week at the HLPF. It examines the work of Alliance members committed to ending violence around the world.
Watch the Children’s Voices video, below, to see youth share messages for world leaders about ending violence against children.
