Recommended Posts

The Ministry of Social Affairs has reiterated its commitment to meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal of eliminating violence against children globally by 2030. Ministry spokesman Touch Channy told Khmer Times yesterday that this was conveyed during a virtual meeting between the ministry and UNICEF Cambodia officials on Tuesday.


He said the ministry will take steps to ban all forms of violence by strengthening child protection data and to enable parents and caregivers to keep children safe. “Making schools safe, non-violent and inclusive is one of the prioritised policies set by the ministry,” Channy said.


He said that during the virtual meeting, Nim Thaut, ministry permanent secretary of state, said that amidst the advancement of globalisation and technology, developed and developing countries continue to face a lot of challenges to end violence against children. Thaut also said that violence against children in any form has detrimental effects on children’s development, their social ethics and dignity.
