Violence against children sadly knows no boundaries, cutting across race, class, religion and culture. Even strong, healthy children can be victims of abuse. In Colombia, stories of infanticide continue to shock society, while abandonment, severe physical punishment, prostitution induced even by caregivers, incest and harsh labor, seem to be part of every day life among the poor.
Conviventia and member organizations, aware that abuse and exploitation have a
devastating effect on the individual child, and a cumulative toll upon
society's social and economic development, we prioritize the prevention
of all forms of violence against children.
You can take part in our work!! Help us raise awareness.... Tell your friends, relatives, co-workers and neighbors about Conviventia and promote the different ways to get involved!
