Children around the world are exposed to unconscionable levels of violence. In some regions, two-thirds of children suffer physical violence and one-third of girls suffer sexual abuse. Violence has devastating effects on brain development, health outcomes, and educational achievement, all of which dims the child’s life chances and limits the potential of their country.
