Child abuse and neglect (CAN) which is generally called as "Child Maltreatment" (CM) has been one of the underlying phenomena all over the world for a long time.Even while reading the first line of this project,it is not so difficult to say that lots of children are exposed to abuse and neglect around the world.1 billion children aged 2-17 experienced physical, sexual, emotional or multiple types of violence in 2014 worldwide.We have to note that these are only recorded statistics.According to World Health Organization (WHO), CAN or CM is defined as “all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment,sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child’s health,survival,development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility,trust or power.”

The aim of the project is to save even one child from any abuse kind and neglect.With this project we will throw a stone to a lake where the abuse and neglect cases do not get the deserved attention.Its wave will spread out to stakeholders and individuals who would like to make a contribution to the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
