Child Protection

We do everything we can to keep children safe.

Every child should be protected from harm, yet children are being exploited every day. Millions are trapped by violence, war, child labour, and sex trafficking.

We’re protecting children wherever they are vulnerable. Whether they're living on the streets, in refugee camps, or in their homes. Working with communities, schools, and governments around the world to train social workers and develop systems to keep children safe.

Child Friendly Spaces: In places affected by crisis or conflict — where the child's right to feel safe, to learn and to play come under threat — World Vision's Child Friendly Spaces provide a safe place for some of the world's most vulnerable children. Each are designed to address children's specific needs depending on the crisis situation. 

Crime prevention against child slavery and child sex trafficking: working in partnership with local hospitals, schools, community leaders, faith communities, and law enforcement agencies to ensure that child protection is a priority. Raising awareness & advocating for child rights and protection.

Reduction in the incidence of early marriage: Partnering with communities to break down ingrained beliefs and unequal systems that force women and girls into early marriage.
