20th November 2012: Universal Child Day, ASF Working For Child Protection In Collaboration With Global Funds For Children, Acting For Life and Smile Again Italy.November 27th, 2012
15% of acid victims are children, the youngest victim having been attacked at the age of one year old…
Acid Survivors Foundation Focuses on a child friendly rehabilitation process that has been funded by Global Funds for Children and tries to make sure that these children ultimately join school back as “normal” children. Acting For Life has also supported ASF-Pakistan, providing trainings and tools to work on child protection and facilitate the counseling process. Acting for Life and Smile Again Italy have also supported ASF preventive action at community level to sensitise children on self protection and acid violence and enhance enrollment of children in formal school.
We are thankful for their precious support but also would like to express our rewarding such activities are: empowering children makes us believe in a sustainable positive future: the picture that are posted hereby reflect hope and show that yes, it is possible to live happily and safely after the worse. ASF team remembers this every single day in its action against acid violence and GBV as a whole. 20th November? A day to remind us of our duty and our only chance to build a humanistic society.
Acid Survivors Foundation wants to pay tribute to a group of brave and determined survivors who have decided to fight against this horrendous form of violence, major breach of human rights. All of them are rebuilding their life, are owning it.
We are proud of them and wanted to thank them for the admiring support that they are capable of providing to other survivors : a great lesson for all of us.
You will get to know more about them later on in our gallery…
See you there…!
