In light of the myriad of reports of violence against children, the Division of Human Services issues a CALL TO ACTION to every Saint Lucian to make prevention of abuse and violence against children a priority.

The call comes during the observance of Child Right Week in Saint Lucia, which is expected to focus on Abuse and Violence against children.

The Department of Human Services is seeking to reminded society of its duty to care and protect them from all forms of violence and abuse in all settings.

This year the Division of Human Services has embarked on two major activities to highlight Child Week. On Tuesday November 17 the Department will be conducting a Sensitization workshop for Early Childhood Educators on Child Abuse at Coco Palm Conference Room.

On Thursday 19th and Friday 20th the Division of Human Services in collaboration with UNICEF and the Saint Lucia Social Development Fund (SSDF) will be hosting a Child Research Symposium which will feature students from secondary schools across the island who will be presenting on social research using the local context.

The symposium will be held at the Bay Gardens Hotel under the auspices of Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy, Governor General of Saint Lucia.
