90% Of ABUSED CHILDREN KNOW THEIR ABUSERS
Child abuse isn’t just about bruises and scrapes. While physical abuse is shocking due to the visible evidence, not all signs of child abuse are as obvious. Ignoring children’s needs, putting them in unsupervised, dangerous environments, exposing them to sexual situations, and degrading their self-worth are all forms of child abuse.

Why Mongolian Children?
Mongolia has the lowest population density of any country, with most of the area being undeveloped and insufficiently mapped. A significant number of Mongolian children are subject to abuse in their homes, at school, and for those engaged in child labour, at work. In addition, there is an alarming number of incidences of Mongolian children being trafficked for labor and sexual exploitation. The physical and psychological effects of abuse vary in severity but have in some cases resulted in the death of a child. Impacts are long term and have a ‘ripple effect’, as abuse and violence tend to ‘spill over:’ children release their anger and pain on siblings, peers, and the next generation.
• 36.6% 36.6% of Mongolia population comprises children aged 0-18
• 77,000 children are actively engaged in some kind of child labour in markets, construction, and mining industry.
• 79% of children aged 2-4 suffer from physical or psychological violence at home.
THE LASTING EFFECTS
Child abuse is a heartbreaking reality for many children living in poverty, and it comes in many forms–physical, sexual, spiritual, and emotional–and it can happen to anyone, including the people you know and love. Whatever the form, there is an urgent and growing need to address the issue of child abuse. Millions of children around the world are suffering and they need our help to take proactive steps to protect them.
