UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.


And we never give up.

The Government of Ghana through its Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP) and the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit has been making good progress in preventing and responding (as survivors are also catered for) to violence and in creating an enabling legislative and policy environment. This has led to the pivotal National Child Protection Policy framework and included initiatives to change behavior through media campaigns and community-based use of the child protection toolkit to facilitate community engagement.

Information and Communication Technologies have been rapidly developing and spreading globally. These advancements have allowed both adults and children to enjoy unprecedented opportunities and benefits in terms of socialization, education, and entertainment. The most prominent spaces used to interact and form social relationships with others are chat rooms, peer-to-peer (P2P) websites, and social networking sites (social media). However, these advances in ICTs also allow online perpetrators to commit crimes and online abuses. Because of children’s inherent curiosity and naiveté, associated with a poor understanding of the potential risks of being exposed to illegal activities committed through the use of ICTs, they are more vulnerable to exploitation and harm than adults]
