From the OVC research arm of Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO), join this webinar on January 16 at 2pm EST
An estimated one billion children are exposed to violence every year. Knowing that childhood trauma has been linked to lifelong impacts such as chronic illness, mood disorders, and relational challenges, we should be especially motivated to change this statistic. Children outside the nurture and protection of parental care are some of the most likely to experience the events and eventual effects of violence. But what can a small nonprofit, or an adoptive parent, or a church who cares about OVC do? INSPIRE: Seven Strategies for Ending Violence Against Children seeks to answer this by distilling guidance, highlighting examples of good practice, and describing a collaborative approach to protecting children from harm. Join Dr. Susan Hillis, one of the coordinators of this impressive effort, as she outlines how each of us can use this tool to bring positive change for vulnerable children.
