Join the WWSF World Campaign 2010 for making prevention of abuse and violence against children a global priority.

Dear Friends and Partners, WWSF is happy to celebrate with you this year the 10th Anniversary of the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse – 19 November. Last year, 785 organizations from 127 countries joined the international coalition marking not only the World Day but also the Prevention Education Week 13-19 November, or supporting the Day in general.

Launched in 2000, the World Campaign & World Day have as their main mission to create a global culture of prevention. We sincerely hope that you will join the 2010 coalition and to help make prevention a worldwide priority.  We also invite you to encourage your members and partners to do the same.

Please find online the 2010 Campaign Registration Form to be returned by 1 June and tick all the corresponding boxes in order to be considered as a coalition member, and describe your planned activities to qualify as an active member. We also give you the link to the introductory page of the campaign here.

To know all about our programs, please visit our revamped new web site, which gives you updated information on our children and on our women section here.

We are pleased to share with you that WWSF is in the process of creating a new interactive web site YouthEngage.com with the aim to involve young people in prevention of abuse and violence among children and adolescents.

We look forward to counting you among the 2010 coalition members and celebrate with you the power of partnership in creating a global culture for prioritizing prevention.

Sincerely, Elly Pradervand, WWSF CEO and interim Children’s Section coordinator.
