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.
