Kids in Trauma‘s mission is preventing and responding to violence, exploitation and abuse against children. This includes sexual exploitation, trafficking, child labor and other harmful practices. We offer a platform for awareness and a call to action when we can. Social media and “sharing” can go a long way. It is important to network, share and discuss solutions.
We rely on community-based approaches to promote and address child protection issues in their area. With certain financial restrictions, we cannot physically be present at all important events. We can cover them however. Awareness can be everything. Evil deeds brought to light or kind events promoted, media can be the key.
We encourage open discussion of child protection issues. We are a people powered organization that uses social media, private websites and individual partners to expose harmful behavior to children.
Reporting on cases of child abuse and neglect can play an important role in educating the public and policy makers about the systemic causes of child maltreatment and ways to prevent it. Often, news coverage about child abuse and neglect focuses on the shocking and brutal results of individual cases.
They should also include information on the causes of the problem and ways to prevent it. Journalists can provide comprehensive coverage that highlights prevention and promotes safe passage for the story to be told.
Journalists can help audiences understand that child abuse and neglect is not simply the result of individual failures or family dynamics, but a public health issue that affects communities and society in significant ways.
We are privately owned and personally funded. Our goal is to bring these issues to light so that they will be addressed. Silence can be deadly. We intend on being heard.
