SOCIETY HAS TURNED A BLIND EYE TO VULNERABLE CHILDREN

Our New #iseeyou campaign focuses on children who are invisible!

WHY THIS CAMPAIGN?

Children are neglected, abandoned, abused, orphaned or displaced and they are everywhere, but we don’t always see them. They are invisible.

You can change that.  Join #iseeyou Campaign to secure each child’s right to care and protection. Let’s make all children visible.

What you can do to support the campaign:

  • Share the campaign video and #iseeyou posts with peers and family on Facebook
  • Speak up and report abuse or mistreatment of another young person
  • Help implement child rights frameworks and measures
  • Ensure children without parental care are visible in child rights debates

Report Abuse:

Children have the right to live in a safe environment. Nobody should mistreat or hurt them – physically, sexually, or with abusive words. If you are aware of abuse or neglect – or have experienced it yourself – speak out

About SOS Children’s Villages

SOS Children’s Villages is the world’s largest non-governmental organisation focused on supporting children and young people without parental care, or at risk of losing it. Founded in 1949 as a non-denominational organisation, today we have a presence in 136 countries and territories.

Our work is anchored in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children. We operate more than 2,600 locally led programmes, directly reaching more than a million children, young people and families. We partner with donors, communities, governments and other organisations to reach the children and young people who need support, and we advocate for governments to uphold their obligations with regard to children’s rights.

In April this year, SOS Children’s Villages released its 70 Years of Impact report that tracks the organisation’s impact on the lives of children and young people through its family-like care and family strengthening services. The research helped to identify the numbers of children reached, but more importantly how they have actually improved their lives in the long term, and how the community has benefited as well.
