This Christmas, help
more children to stand up
and speak out for a
safer tomorrow


One in every two children across the world experience abuse, violence or neglect.

Every child should have the opportunity to be safe from harm. 
Will you give today to our Christmas Match Appeal 2023 to help make that possible for more children?

It’s a match appeal, meaning that every pound or dollar you give will be doubled by another generous friend of Viva to have twice the impact.


Right: Girls in Nepal share the message of ‘Stop Violence Against Children’.

Viva equips churches to work together to make a bigger and better impact in the lives of children – and to prevent abuse and violence from happening in the first place.

We coach partner networks around the world as they empower children to stand up and speak out against harmful situations to keep them and their peers safe.

  • can teach a group of 30 children the difference between good and bad touch, and how to report abuse


  • can train one young person to stand up for their rights and get 10 of their peers to speak out too


  • can deliver safeguarding training for one organisation, ensuring its staff know how to protect children

Samjhana is
cared for now

Samjhana is 15 and from Nepal. Growing up, she was neglected, malnourished and her parents had hoped she would marry young.

At a Learning Space, run by Viva’s partner network, Samjhana heard how parents should treat their children.

She felt compelled to share it with her family and, accompanied by a mentor, Samjhana did just that.

Her parents learned so much about good parenting and child rights! Now they give love and care that is equal to her brothers and support her education. Samjhana is thriving at school!

Across Asia, Viva supports our partner networks to establish Learning Spaces, which help reduce violence against children by educating parents and empowering young people.
