Sexual violence against children is a global pandemic. One in five girls and one in 13 boys experience sexual violence. It happens everywhere, and across all socio-economic groups, with devastating and lifelong consequences for individuals, their families, and society.
But it does not have to be this way. Sexual violence against children is preventable.
Our partner Oak Foundation's Prevent Child Sexual Abuse (PCSA) program interviewed leaders in the violence against children space to gather their perspectives on how we can put an end to this global scourge and create a safer world for children.
