The United Nations Secretary-General's Study on Violence against Children has been a global effort to paint a detailed picture of the nature, extent and causes of violence against children, and to propose clear recommendations for action to prevent and respond to it. This is the first time that an attempt has been made to document the reality of violence against children around the world, and to map out what is being done to stop it. Since 2003, many thousands of people have contributed to the study in consultations and working groups, through questionnaires and in other ways. Children and young people have been active at every level. On 11 October 2006, the UN General Assembly will consider the study's findings and recommendations.
Here is Tanzania we have the opportunity to address this wide spread physical, mental and emotional torture that our children go through, this month will make a country wide campaign on violence against Children, it is wider than you might think, if you know of any child that is in unsafe hands and under violent treatment please do report to the nearest police station or any authority for that matter, Tanzania is a community that we should raise our children with that in mind.
As a jounalist there is much that I can do but the most that I can do is use my camera and TV to expose these conditions and that I will not stop. PLEASE HELP ME EXPOSE THE VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN.
