How UNICEF Stops Abuse and Exploitation

Violence against children happens everywhere, every day. To stop it, UNICEF fights to return child soldiers to civilian life and helps them rebuild their lives; supports safe haven shelters that care for street kids; trains and funds child protection teams to patrol areas where children are trafficked; develops innovative programs like Safe and Friendly Cities and Safe Schools; and supports groundbreaking national surveys to document the prevalence of violence against girls and boys and help governments build better protection systems.
