Each day, thousands of children across the world face situations characterised by abuse and neglect. The onus of intervention does not lie with any single agency or organisation but is a collective community responsibility. India is home to 19% of the world’s children. A study of 12447 children across 13 states in India showed that young children were most at risk for abuse and exploitation. Two thirds of children were physically abused, over 50% of children had faced one or more forms of sexual abuse and every second child reported facing emotional abuse.
