Interpersonal violence – in all its forms – has a grave effect on children: Violence undermines children’s future potential; damages their physical, psychological and emotional well-being; and in many cases, ends their lives. The report sheds light on the prevalence of different forms of violence against children, with global figures and data from 190 countries. Where relevant, data are disaggregated by age and sex, to provide insights into risk and protective factors.
What Tavaana Students Have to Say
As an Iranian citizen, I might never have even thought about civic institutions if it wasn't for this course. As of now, there is no group in Iran doing this kind of work for us. I give my utmost thanks to you and all of the Tavaana staff. I hope you offer a greater variety of courses, because our people desperately need it.
