#WeToo launches movement to bring leading businesses and individuals to tackle child abuse


GENEVA and PARIS, September 17, 2021 / CNW / – #WeToo, the world’s first global organization to end child abuse, is launched today. It will bring together leading companies and individuals to raise funds and raise awareness to address the growing child abuse around the world.

UNICEF and the World Health Organization estimate that each year 55 million children in Europe – and about a billion worldwide – are victims of physical, sexual or psychological abuse or neglect. That’s more children than the population of Europe be abused globally.

While governments and NGOs such as UNICEF have done much to tackle child abuse, the problem continues to worsen, made worse by the COVID pandemic. #WeToo aims to bring the dynamism and resources of the private sector into the work to end child abuse.

It will do this in three ways:

  1. Money collector : the fight against child abuse is underfunded. Both individuals and large businesses can help correct this.

  2. Distribute effectively: it is not enough to collect money; we also need to pass it on to those who can use it most effectively and quickly. The #WeToo expert committee will choose the projects to be funded around the world based on their impact and quality. All donations will be distributed, monitored and publicly reviewed every 6 months with interim reviews to ensure milestones are met on time through the use of Concordium’s latest blockchain technology.

  3. Action campaign: we too can do our best to raise awareness not only of the problem, but also of the solution. The higher up the public agenda is child abuse, the more likely society, including governments, to act.

The first event of the movement takes place on October 16, 2021, with a global DJ’ed yoga event organized by Stewart gilchrist and Friends, with sessions held in the Himalayas, London, Paris, Bali, Copenhagen, Shanghai and new York.

“Children’s voices must be prioritized and heard, not silenced. It is timely and appropriate for adults to come together and commit to ending child abuse, and I am delighted that personalities in the private sector have offered to help us address this urgent and urgent problem. global child abuse crisis. This is exactly what it takes to improve the outlook for our children, ”said Hanna-Stokholm Dam, the founder of #WeToo.

#WeToo has previously agreed to work alongside one of the world’s leading professional service providers, Ernst & Young, Live Nation, the world’s leading promoter of live music, and Concordium, the leading blockchain company.

The organization’s campaign plan was developed by the #WeToo Expert Panel, made up of some of the world’s top child protection experts, such as Dr Pierre Levy-Soussan, expert at the French courts and international expert on child protection, and Dr Rasmus Kjeldahl, director of the Danish children’s NGO “Børns VilkÃ¥r.”

#WeToo has already put together an exciting schedule of upcoming events, campaigns, alliances and concerts, more details of which will be released at a later date.
