Violence Against Children: Voices of Ugandan Children and Adults

by Dipak Naker of Raising Voices
via: Soul Beat Africa
Raising Voices, 2005

This document examines the views of children and adults on child violence. Children were asked about their experiences of violence used against them: how the violence manifests, how often it occurs, who commits it, how it makes them feel, how they react, and what they believe should be done to prevent it. Adults were asked about their perspective of violence against children: how they understand the term "violence against children," how adults in their communities punish children, how they themselves punish children, how they rationalise the types of punishment they use, and what they believe should be done to prevent violence against children.
