Children of the World campaign is designed to work across five thematic areas of health and nutrition, child protection, child poverty, education and child rights. Children have an absolute right to be safe. Yet girls and boys in every country, in every culture and at every social level face forms of abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence. These violations include sexual exploitation and abuse, trafficking, drug addiction, child labour, physical and humiliating punishment along with harmful traditional practices affecting children and adolescents. Protecting children from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect is essential for them to enjoy their rights to survival, development and participation. Abuse, neglect violence and exploitation are serious human rights violations that occur in all parts of the world. This includes within the home, in schools, in institutions, at work, in the community, in armed conflicts and in natural disasters. Exposure in one setting may be compounded by violence in another. Violence against children is increasingly linked across countries and regions, through child trafficking, child abusive images, unsafe migration, and the increasing frequency of migration due to climate related disasters.
