Speak Out – Be Protected

2 February 2021

Your guide to reporting all forms of violence against children.

Violence against children occurs globally and throughout the Asia region and takes place in all settings.

Despite concerted efforts by many stakeholders, much of this violence remains hidden and under-reported.

Every child has a right to protection from all violence

The Child-Sensitive Reporting Mechanisms toolkit “Speak Out –Be Protected!” identifies simple and user-friendly processes through which children and their peers (and families) can raise child protection concerns and report to the respective mandatory child protective agencies, services or trusted community groups/institutions.

Violence can mean many different things. Physical abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse and neglect are the main types of violence covered in this manual.
