To commemorate the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse today, we are delighted to launch our new Kenya storytelling hub. Propelled by the first Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS) in 2010, Kenya raised awareness, mobilized resources, and prioritized a decade of action to end violence against children. The results from the second VACS, launched earlier this year, show that these efforts paid off. Change is possible.
But we know that lasting change doesn’t come from one actor or one sector alone. It takes data-driven policies, evidence-based solutions, powerful partnerships, and amazing individual action.
