ENCOURAGEMENT TO PROTECT CHILDREN FROM PHYSICAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE

ENCOURAGEMENT TO PROTECT CHILDREN FROM PHYSICAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE

The All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC) brings greetings of peace in the midst of much anxiety and unrest due to COVID-19. In these days of concern about global health, we must not forget children, but rather create a safe world for them. In 2019, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), published the finding of the "Out of the Shadows" index to help to end sexual violence against children. Sexual violence against children encompasses both child physical sexual abuse like rape and non-contact sexual abuse such  as exposure to sexual language and images.
