Children in child-friendly space in DRC

We Protect

Girls and boys from abuse and violence

The need to keep children safe

Our approach to ending violence against children protects them today and empowers them for tomorrow. We do this by equipping children, families, faith leaders, schools and various levels of government, with the tools to address the root causes of violence against children.

We speak out on issues like violence and abuse, influencing laws and amplifying children's voices. With your support, we work in the most vulnerable places, with communities and local and national government at all levels. We empower communities to build a safety net of loving and caring people to protect children, prevent harm, and ensure that those who are harmed receive the help they need to recover.

The fight for child safety faces great challenges:

How we secure children's safety

We speak out on issues like child marriage, child labour, and child soldiers.

When childhood is protected, futures are transformed. In 2016 to 2017, World Vision supporters helped 10.2 million children in 62 countries benefit from our child protection work.
