Every child has the right to be heard

Data gathered from child helplines has shown that every second, somewhere in the world,
a child contacts a child helpline. Millions of those who reach out are victims of violence, millions suffer from neglect, and millions call to be saved from sexual abuse, physical abuse or suicide. It takes a lot of courage for a young person to speak about these issues. In fact, those who get through to child helplines often mention that they have never spoken to anyone else about them. Yet half of the children’s contacts are never answered because child helplines
don’t have the resources they need.

You can sign the campaign’s digital petition with the power of your voice – something that millions of children lose when they cannot reach a child helpline. Your voice will help us move one step closer to getting the support we need from governments, foundations, international organisations and corporations to ensure that no child will be left unheard.

The Free Our Voices campaign is powered by Child Helpline International. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us on Facebook, Twitter or via email at
