Stopping Violence Against Women and Children

1 in 3 women experience violence in their lifetime.

Women and girls like Tatiana* in Guatemala.

Four-year-old Tatiana was playing hide-and-seek when a teenage boy trapped her in a dark room and violently assaulted her.

“He suggested his room would be the perfect place to hide, as no one would find us."

Tatiana is not alone.
Worldwide, up to 50% of sexual assaults are committed against girls under 16 years old. This has to stop now.

IJM works to combat violence against women and children in Guatemala, Bolivia, El Salvador, Kenya, Colombia, Peru and Uganda.
