The global campaign launched by BICE calling children from all over the world to have their voices heard in order to stop the violence towards them has already been beneficial. Take a look back in pictures at this wonderful initiative.

An international campaign to stop the violence towards children

Since November 20, 2015, BICE and the member organizations from its network launched a global campaign to put an end to the violence towards children by asking the children themselves to get involved.

By responding to the following question: If I was Mayor of my town, what would I do to stop violence towards children? Children all over the world can have their voices heard with a view to stop violence directed towards them.

All these ideas will be submitted in March 2016 to Mrs. Marta Santo Pais, special representative of the UN General Secretary in order to stop the violence towards children.

The voice of children will therefore be heard at the international level.
