Child Protection

Children have the right to be protected, yet millions suffer from violence, exploitation and abuse every day. An estimated 168 million children around the world are engaged in child labour. More than 1 in 3 girls are married before the age of 15.

World Vision addresses child protection by working to prevent and respond to all forms of violence against children – including abuse, neglect and sexual exploitation.​​​​

When the project began, only 41% of grandmothers believed that the risks of female genital mutilation outweighed the benefits. Within 2 years, 95% of grandmothers felt that it was too risky to practice.
