Put an end to violence against children

12/07/2016: Argentina

The Governments of the world think that it is possible to put an end to the violence against children in the whole world. For this a Global Alliance to put an End to Violence Against Children has been created with the objective of supporting the actions of all those who seek to prevent violence against children, to protect the children and to help societies to be more safe for children. This Global Alliance is developing a plan that will help to impulse the so urgently necessary change so that all – including communities, children and Government leaders – may work together to put an end to violence against children.

During the month of March 2016, FMSI Cono Sur, as member of this Alliance, made a consultation in which 826 Marist children and adolescents (between 10 and 17 years of age) participated from Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and the United States. The objective of this work was to know the opinion of children in relation to the violence that affects them, as well as the necessary actions which can put an end to it, whether in their community, in their country and at world level.

The present material represents a synthesis of the voices and their coincidences, for the purpose that a tool of critical reflection can be created, and a fundamental contribution at the time of thinking about educational strategies, of accompaniment or of political effect. Listen to them “the boys” and “the girls”, place them in the “center” of our mission, this is a form of being faithful to the legacy of Marcelin Champagnat, on which FMSI is inspired.
