Mobilisation against child sexual violence



New video of the “Defend yourself” campaign

23/05/2018: Brazil

Brazil dedicated Mai 18 to promoting the confrontation of sexual violence against children and adolescents in the country.

According to the data collected, more than 28,000 complaints of sexual violence were registered in 2017, representing 34% of all complaints on the violation of children’s human rights.

Faced with this situation, the Centro Marista de Defesa da Infância (Marist Center for the Defense of Children) in the province of Brasil Centro-Sur launched the eleventh video of the “Defend yourself” campaign.

In addition to subsidizing educators, families and professionals of the System of Guarantee of Rights, the campaign talks directly with children, bringing situations of everyday life that can facilitate sexual violence, as well as affirmative attitudes that can break with violence or prevent it from happening.

This year marks the fourth year of the “Defend yourself” campaign. During this period, the Center has developed a project to widely discuss sexual rights and the confrontation of sexual violence against children, based on an accessible, friendly, preventive and self-defense language – topics that have been until now little debated in the country.

Eleven videos on the subject, in addition to educational materials, are available on the website of the campaign: http://defenda-se.com/ .
