Introduction

Why a World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse?

Together, let us create a culture of prevention

Child abuse, especially sexual abuse, is a universal and alarming problem and increased attention and efficient protection skills and prevention measures are necessary at family-, local-, national- and international level.

After a long tradition of silence, sexual child abuse is being more and more denounced and becoming a public and political topic.

Alerting Governments and civil society organizations to play a more active role in the promotion of and respect for the rights of the child (article 19 and 34* of the Convention on the Rights of the Child), and contribute to the prevention of child abuse, WWSF launched in 2000 the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse, a Day to be commemorated every 19 November in synergy with the anniversary of the International Day for the rights of the child (20 November) which has as its objective to be a rallying point around the issue of child abuse and the need for urgent effective prevention programs.

To make the Day a global call for action, WWSF launched in 2001 an international NGO coalition that marks the World Day with appropriate events and activities to focus on and increase prevention education.

* Art. 19 - States Parties shall take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s) or any other person who has the care of the child.

* ART. 34 - States Parties undertake to protect the child from all forms of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse. For these purposes, States Parties shall in particular take all appropriate national, bilateral and multilateral measures to prevent:

(a) the inducement or coercion of a child to engage in any unlawful sexual activity;
(b) the exploitative use of children in prostitution or other unlawful sexual practices;
(c) the exploitative use of children in pornographic performances and materials.

Why a NGO Coalition to mark World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse?

The main purpose of the NGO Coalition is to contribute to the creation of a culture of prevention of child abuse and form a global partnership network to raise awareness, mobilise public opinion and action, and disseminate prevention programs.

To join the Coalition, members commit to mark the Day with local and national events and activities; mention the Day in their publications and on their web sites; distribute posters, educational programs and information; create partnerships with local organisations working for the promotion and protection of the rights of the child, alert the press and radio stations, inform local authorities of the existence of the Day and planned activities, and lobby governments for official proclamation of the Day as a National Day.

In 2001, the international NGO coalition united 149 organizations in more than 60 countries. Each one marked the Day with either local or national activities and events. The different activities are compiled in a published impact report. To view the report, click here (ACROBAT).

We encourage international and national organizations to join and support the Coalition. There is no membership fee to join.

What people say about the Day

Extracts from messages:

Kofi Anan, United Nations Secretary General, " ... would have liked to participate in this important event which will focus on the prevention of child abuse and the rights of the child. He welcomes your advocacy on behalf of the world's children... ". (2001)

Dr. Juan Miguel, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography " ... It is largely thanks to the work of NGOs that the issue of child abuse is now on the international agenda... We must continue the fight in order to ensure that this concern results in concrete changes... On this day of commitment and reflection... I invite you to continue to provide me with information, which will enable me to carry out my mandate, and intervene to help children... "

" ... Unicef supports all initiatives that sensitize public opinion and civil society and supports prevention programs as well as the reintegration of survivors into their families, schools and society... Unicef thanks WWSF once more for its commitment to promoting protection of abuse and rights of the child programs..."

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we need a World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse?

Every year over 1 million children are pulled into the sex trade. Almost daily we hear of new child abuses, and even employees of respected international institutions have been found to be involved in sexual abuse. It is clear that an intelligent and effective approach to this problem consists in increasing prevention measures and protective skills, raising public awareness and encourageing denunciation of abuse.

What difference does the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse make?

In 2001, 150 NGOs joined an international coalition to mark the Day with public awareness campaigns and prevention education. More than 100 organizations sent reports of local and national events organized on 19 November. They are part of an emerging movement for the creation of a culture of prevention. The Republic of Costa Rica is the first country that declared by Presidential Decree 19 November a National Day.

Geneva Event 2001

Press Release on the occasion of World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse

The Women's World Summit Foundation WWSF launched the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse on 19 November 2000 (a date to create a synergy with the anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child) in response to an unacceptable announcement in a respected Swiss daily paper of a pedophile network having created an international day for pedophilia. Sexual abuse and exploitation of children and youth being a universal and complex problem which defies both simplistic analysis and easy answers, the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse aims above all to create a culture of prevention around the world.

At its launching message and inauguration in 2000, WWSF disseminated Dr. Sherryll Kraizer's educational program "Protecting Children from Abuse". This public briefing has circulated the world and has been translated into many national and local languages and is now used in many schools. It seems to fill a need for parents to give their children basic skills to fight off sexual aggressors. However, such programs alone are not an absolute guarantee against child abuse and increased prevention information and education is needed to reinforce the promotion of existing programs, improve circulation of information, and create new strategies for action.

Nevertheless, efforts to speed up prevention do come up against difficulties, e.g. the world scale of the problem, the vulnerability of children, the lack of political will to address this issue on a regular basis, the power of vested interests, including financial interest, etc.

The issue of child abuse is too complex to be addressed from a single perspective. No one group has the expertise to address all the issues of children who have been abused. Inter-sectoral and integrated approaches as well as joint actions and networks that maintain a broad ranging perspective are necessary.

In the face of such challenges and to increase cooperation, experience sharing and resource dissemination, WWSF launched in 2001 an international NGO coalition for the dignity of children. The NGO coalition, keystone of the World Day campaign, brought together 149 NGOs from 60 countries that committed to mark the Day with significant local or national activities and events.

Encouraged by civil society's response in recognition of the necessity for such a World Day, and stressing that more about abuse prevention and protection needs to be done, WWSF is reinforced in its commitment to continue with the annual campaign and disseminate innovative approaches and information on Internet to the benefit of coalition members and the NGO child rights community in general.

In Geneva, several events marked the commemoration of the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse

A public demonstration in front of the United Nations

The official remittance of the "Petition Fusterie" to UNICEF demanding urgent intervention by the UN, governments and the media in order to ensure urgent implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Petition was launched in the year 2000 and generated 17,000 signatures from around the world.

A press conference, followed by a public debate. Elly Pradervand succeeded in bringing together a large number of personalities from diverse backgrounds that agreed to address the media on the World Day and underlined the importance of prevention measures and efficient protection skills against child abuse. Interventions also included the urgent need to adequately finance prevention programs as a society can be evaluated by the way it treats its children

A commemoration at the Temple de la Fusterie in the evening with speakers and music to close the Day.

OPEN LETTER to Coalition Members & Partners marking
World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse - 19 November 2002

Creating a culture of prevention

Dear Coalition Members and Partners,

For the third year, the Women's World Summit Foundation WWSF * invites you to organize pertinent activities to mark World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse on 19 November. Last year 149 organizations joined the international NGO coalition created to mark the Day. We thank all those who sent us activity reports which are published on the web www.woman.ch (Children's Section).

This year, in order to increase efficiency, we encourage you to not only join the international coalition to mark the Day, but to create national coalitions linking relevant groups and actors. Aim: to foster collaboration and strengthen your community impact, share prevention measures, protection skills and rehabilitation programs, and above all, highlight the new promises made by Heads of State and Government at the UN General Assembly Special Session on Children (UNGASS, New York, May 2002). The key is partnership and you are powerful catalysts for change. No single organisation, by itself, can provide the ongoing research and strategies required to create a culture of prevention. Coalitions outweigh what one individual member cannot achieve, and serve as a platform for focused action by all interested partners; they bring together a range of expertise, enhance the capacity of individual members by sharing knowledge, skills and experiences. Coalitions increase public awareness of the need for effective prevention measures and help mobilize funds for your activities. To help you build coalitions, see instructions on our web site.

Child abuse includes sexual abuse, physical, emotional, medical and educational neglect; child pornography and on-line solicitation, sale of children, using a child as a servant or soldier; hitting, hurting, bullying, ridiculing and manipulating a child, and leaving a child without supervision. You may wish to focus your activities and events on any of these issues and condemn all forms of abuse and violations that endanger the lives of children as stated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

OBJECTIVES

- Empower NGOs and networks at national and community levels

- Present them the opportunity to organize joint activities for social mobilisation on the World Day

- Increase and disseminate widely education on abuse prevention and protection skills

- Remind Governments regularly of their new promises to "protect children from all forms of abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence" signed at the UN Special Session on Children (May 2002). The World Day provides you an opportunity to remind your Heads of State to walk their talk via the "Walk your Talk" postcard campaign (see Internet: www.woman.ch)

- Strengthen partnerships with your Government for collaborative action and lobby them to declare 19 November a National Day and to use the Day to convey a message to the children about their new commitment to protect them from abuse, exploitation and violence,

- Bring information to the UN Special Rapporteur on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography, about violations of concern to his mandate and knowledge of sexual abuse and exploitation in your respective country. To do so, consult www.unhchr.ch/children/rapporteur.htm

- Invite the media (both print and electronic) to help increase awareness about prevention of child abuse and cover regular prevention messages including TV-spots and interviews.

WORKING PRINCIPLES

Ensure that the diversity of social, economic and cultural contexts are reflected in all your programs. Declare community ownership and responsibility in all aspects, such as financing, administration, training, etc. Allow children to be involved where appropriate and to have a voice. Assimilate new information and prevention measures without jeopardizing local values and language. Identify organisations and groups that will mark the World Day with you.

IMPACT REPORTS

Your impact report is vital to us and we thank you in advance for sending us valuable information and insights into ways you use to prevent child abuse. A summary of reports received is published on the web for others to learn from your participatory approach on how to empower civil society to prevent child abuse.

EDUCATIONAL BRIEFINGS

We invite you to continue to use the public briefing "Protecting children from abuse" (courtesy Dr. Sherryl Kraizer) as a regular community education program which can be downloaded (www.woman.ch) or ordered via Email (dignity@vtxnet.ch). For your information, the Geneva Public Education Department (Switzerland) has recently elaborated a new workshop for children aged 7-9 (in French only) "Promotion de la santt Prntion des abus sexuels" (Email: ssg@etat.ge.ch).

Open Letter 2001

Dear Coalition Members and Campaign Partners:

The Women’s World Summit Foundation WWSF* takes this opportunity to thank all 149 organizations from 60 countries that have answered the call to join the international coalition and expressed commitment to mark the World Day for Prevention of Child abuse on 19 November 2001 with appropriate activities and events to call forth a culture of prevention around the world. Broad based coalitions are more and more recognized to be one of the most energetic parts of civil society and coalition members are important touchstones for change, creating movement, awareness, life, energy, and ignite the spirit of human dignity. The problem of child abuse and exploitation, especially sexual, is an alarming universal problem, which needs increased local, national and international attention and ongoing effective prevention and protection measures.

As coalition members you are part of a growing global partnership network engaged in different activities including education, advocacy, empowerment, prevention, protection and rehabilitation programs, children’s rights activities, advice, hot-line services and participation in international fora. Together you are making the World Day a discernable moment in time for increased public awareness and mobilization. The names of your organizations are featured on the global poster to give visibility to your participation and on our web site www.woman.ch (19 November). Your national programs for 19 and 20 November 2001 will also be added on the web as we hear about them from you.

Objectives

International coalition members commit to

Participate in creating a culture of prevention by convening annual events and joint activities to mark the World Day, in synergy with the anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (20 November)

Empower communities to take responsibility for the future of their children by teaching them protective skills

Develop local expertise and alternative opportunities for children in vulnerable situations and provide protective filters and guidelines for the good use of the Internet

Be a platform for information sharing and awareness raising about effective prevention-, protection- and rehabilitation programs and activities in your communities

Innovate and continue to improve partnership approaches for prevention and protection of child abuse and neglect

Help create the political will and remind Governments of their ratification of the Convention of the Rights of the Child, especially Article 34

Lobby governments for official proclamation of the World Day as a National Day, to enact legislation and strengthen appropriate mechanisms

Increase outreach at a national, regional and international level including the media

Working Principles For Coalition Members

Empower organizations and the media to address the problem of sexual abuse with local interventions and communications. There are no standard prevention services that can be applied everywhere. The diversity of social, economic and cultural contexts has to be reflected in all programs

Support local projects that catalyse change, i.e. drama, dance, music, puppets, drums, story telling, dialogue circles, etc.

Declare community ownership and responsibility for your local events in all aspects, such as financing, administration, training, etc.

Strengthen local moral values and allow children to be involved in programs where appropriate and to have a voice

Assimilate new information and prevention programs without jeopardizing local values and language

Identify other organisations and religious groups that will take on prevention of child abuse and rehabilitation programs

Definitions

Prevention: Primary programs aimed at the general population include education and awareness raising. Secondary programs targeted at those considered at higher risk, because of poverty, ethnicity, separation from families, etc. and other programs that work with children and young people who have already been exposed to abuse and that would prevent further abuse.

Protection: is linked to prevention and refers to programs protecting children from abuse or from further harm once abuse has occurred. It can include revising judicial systems and sensitivity for children in the judicial systems.

Rehabilitation: refers to services that assist children to move on from their experiences of abuse.

Educational Briefing

WWSF disseminates a public educational briefing "Protecting children from abuse" as of the age of 3 (courtesy Dr. Sherryl Kraizer) (in four languages), which WWSF launched worldwide on the occasion of inaugurating the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse - 19 November 2000. The program can be ordered via Email dignity@vtxnet.ch or downloaded via Internet www.woman.ch (19 November).

Use of Logo

Permission to use the logo of the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse for information purposes is granted provided that the names of implementing- and sponsor organizations are mentioned. Permission for fundraising purposes requires a written request addressed to WWSF, including event program and budget. WWSF cannot be held responsible for any legal, financial and administrative liabilities, which might result from local activities by coalition members.

Impact Reports

Feedback on local and national activities and events organized around the Day are highly appreciated; they provide valuable additional information and insights into ways of how to create a culture of prevention of child abuse upon which future interventions and activities can be built. A summary of impact reports received (programs, press releases, news clippings and photographs) will be published on the web site for other actors to learn from participatory approaches to empower local civil society.
