In 2000, Governments and United Nations set global priorities to reduce poverty around the world. They were called the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and have led to much progress.
But the MDGs missed the opportunity to prioritize joint action so children are FREE from violence and exploitation. We must not let that happen again.
Worldwide, almost half of all children experience some form of physical violence before the age of eight; 85 million children are involved in hazardous work; and more than 200 million children are subject to sexual abuse.
Right now, a new set of priorities is being decided to improve the lives of the worldâ€™s most disadvantaged children, their families and communities.
Join us in this once-in-a-generation opportunity: Sign this petition to let Governments and United Nations know YOUR priority is a world where children are FREE from violence and exploitation.
