Child abuse is a reality. Cases of child abuse in homes and schools are more often than we would want.
It’s necessary to know the reality to be able to change it

  • In Ecuador, violence is one ot the ten leading causes of death in children and adolescents.
  • “In Ecuador 39.9% of children between 6 and 17 years old have been physically abused by their parents as the first correctional option”, according to the poll by UNICEF “My opinion counts”.
  • 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys are sexually abused before they reach the age of 18.  In 93% of the cases, the abuser is a relative or someone close to the family, according to INEC.
  • Together as a society, companies and individuals, we have the obligation to stop child abuse and sexual abuse.
