Children are not for hitting
Everyday, violence invades the lives of millions of children around the world, including in Malaysia.
These children suffer violence that includes physical and psychological violence as well as neglect and deprivation. Because such violence is more often committed by those duty bound to protect children, it remains a largely hidden phenomenon.
The millions of children who are victims of violence each year are proof that the world has failed to protect them.
The abuse of a child is a contravention of their rights. It may however also be a major obstacle in their healthy development and the wellbeing and stability of societies.
Hitting people is wrong – and children are people too.
Every child has the right to grow up safe from harm, abuse and violence.
We can stop violence against children!
Every individual can do their part to end violence against children.
