#ENDviolence against #Children – Words Matter – Cost is US$7 trillion a year

#Endviolence Against #Children – Words Matter (Paint Write Read Draw)

Every year, at least one billion children experience violence – that’s half of the world’s children

One in two children experience violence every year

Worldwide, close to 130 million (more than one in three) students from age 13-15 experience bullying

Every seven minutes, an adolescent dies as a result of violence

Children with disabilities are almost four times more likely to experience violence than non-disabled children

Over one million children are reported missing every year

Globally, the cost of violence against children adds up to US$7 trillion a year

Three out of four young children are regularly subjected to violent discipline by their caregivers

One in every four children is living in a country affected by conflict or disaster

Only 12 per cent of children are fully protected from corporal punishment – by law – across the world (or alternately: 88 per cent of the world’s children are not protected from corporal punishment by law

Every single incidence of violence against a child is a tragedy with lifelong consequences.

Violence affects the chemistry of a child’s brain, inhibiting physical growth and decreasing children’s
ability to learn, thrive and contribute to society.

Those who experience violence in childhood are more likely to be re-victimised later in life. They are
also more likely to perpetuate a cycle of violence onto the next generation.

Without addressing violence, we will never capitalize on global efforts around education, health, and sustainable development – and we will never achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

Cada año, al menos un billon de niños sufren violencia, es decir, la mitad de los niños del mundo

Uno de cada dos niños experimenta violencia cada año

En todo el mundo, cerca de 130 millones (más de uno de cada tres) estudiantes de entre 13 y 15 años sufren acoso escolar

Cada siete minutos muere un adolescente a consecuencia de la violencia

Los niños con discapacidad tienen casi cuatro veces más probabilidades de sufrir violencia que los niños sin discapacidad

Más de un millón de niños desaparecen cada año

A nivel mundial, el costo de la violencia contra los niños asciende a 7 trillones de dólares al año

Tres de cada cuatro niños pequeños son sometidos regularmente a disciplinas violentas por parte de sus cuidadores.

Uno de cada cuatro niños vive en un país afectado por conflictos o desastres

Solo el 12% de los niños están completamente protegidos contra los castigos corporales - por ley - en todo el mundo (o alternativamente: el 88% de los niños del mundo no están protegidos por ley contra los castigos corporales

Cada incidente de violencia contra un niño es una tragedia con consecuencias para toda la vida.

La violencia afecta la química del cerebro de un niño, inhibiendo el crecimiento físico y disminuyendo la capacidad para aprender, prosperar y contribuir a la sociedad.

Aquellos que experimentan violencia en la infancia tienen más probabilidades de volver a ser victimizados más adelante en la vida. Son también es más probable que perpetúe un ciclo de violencia en la próxima generación.

Sin abordar la violencia, nunca capitalizaremos los esfuerzos globales en torno a la educación, la salud y el desarrollo sostenible, y nunca alcanzaremos los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible.
