Millions of children around the world are involved in the worst forms of child labour, are trafficked as sex workers, are forced to be soldiers, are married too young, are subjected to female genital mutilation, are beaten and abandoned.
World Vision addresses child protection by working to prevent and respond to all forms of violence against children — including abuse, neglect, and sexual exploitation.
As an organization, we work to address the root causes of poverty and injustice in an integrated, holistic way.
World Vision supports:
- preventing exploitation, harmful traditional practices and violence against children
- protecting children living in vulnerable situations
- restoring children who have been abused, neglected or exploited
World Vision’s approach to child protection involves strengthening the protective environment around children, as well as the children themselves.
