21% of girls in India, 12 million, have been subjected to physical violence since age 15. 2.6 million girls aged 15 to 19, or 4.5% of the girls in that age group, suffered some form of sexual violence.
Ending violence against children is a challenging task as often they suffer in silence and many times adults turn a blind eye to the problem. It can only be ended by collective realization and empowerment.
The #ENDviolence #ItStartsWithMe campaign aims at raising awareness about different forms of violence, including physical, emotional, sexual and child marriage.
Join hands and take a step to #ENDviolence against children. I can #ENDviolence because #ItStartsWithMe
