Sexual Violence Against Children

Sexual violence affects millions around the world, and children in poor countries
are some of the most vulnerable.

They are at risk in their homes, schools and in their communities. But, with no money for a lawyer, it’s harder for impoverished children and their families to get justice.

In many places, there is no meaningful justice system response to sexual violence against children. Police are often untrained on investigations, and courts don’t protect children during the intense trial process. As a result, rapists know they can target children without fear of the law.

"IJM gave me hope to continue seeking justice when I was in the stage of nowhere. IJM supported me in pursuing justice that I wanted to achieve."
