Have you ever received Letter of Demotivation?
Like Julien, many adults who are victims of violence during their childhood suffer from trauma in their personal and professional lives. This letter of demotivation has been sent to the biggest French companies, to remind you that companies too must act for the protection of children. Innocence in Danger Switzerland also addresses it to swiss companies.
Business Leaders, HR managers and recruiters, join our fight to protect children today.
Invest in the future.
Julien Miraute does not exist.
But he represents hundreds of thousands of victims.
On the occasion of the 30th International Day for the Rights of the Child, on this November 20th, the Innocence in Danger association is launching a major awareness campaign on the devastating consequences of sexual violence against children.
Companies have a role to play in child protection.
It is time for companies to feel concerned by this scourge. Beyond the purely human, unbearable and terrible aspect: sexual violence also has an economic impact. A child victim will be marked for life, and will become, without help, a traumatized adult, in his or her personal and professional life.
Investing to prevent sexual violence against children and to help child victims regain control of their lives should be a priority for companies.
Investing today is investing for tomorrow.
The figures on violence:
According to the latest study by INED (Institut national d’études démographiques), conducted in 2015 on a representative sample of the population aged 20 to 69, 1 in 7 women and 1 in 25 men report having experienced “at least one form of sexual violence”.
In Europe, 1 in 5 children has been the victim of some form of sexual violence.
A 2015 study by the Overseas Development Institute revealed that the cost and economic impact of physical, psychological and sexual violence could reach $7 trillion, or 8% of global GDP.
In Europe, this impact was estimated at 142.7 billion in 2014, or 25% of the European budget.
