A youth march in Morne Pelee brought community members together to raise awareness about children's rights and violence against children.

The march was part of a national campaign led by World Vision to teach youth and parents alike about topics like domestic violence, child trafficking and the importance of birth certificates.

Over 580 people joined in the march, including 440 children, 100 parents and 40 representatives from local organizations.

This is the beginning of several activities planned to strengthen child protection systems in the community. With your support, we're working to ensure children are heard and well cared for in Morne Pelee.
