Explore Social Workers, A Girl, and more!

Today, 2 October, we celebrate the International Day of Non-Violence. This occasion reminds us that there are still millions of children out there who have been, and still continue to be affected by violence that comes in all forms. This day is dedicated to them, and to the parents, teachers, social workers, government officials, humanitarian workers and all others who work hard towards a future free of violence for children everywhere.

Fortunately, aunts and uncles, grandparents and even distant relatives step in to help.
