UNICEF TV Nonviolence workshops protect Palestinian children

Children in the West Bank and Gaza experience violence at many levels -- not only because of ongoing hostilities between Israel and Palestine but also due to cultural beliefs and practices that tolerate violence inflicted by parents and teachers. UNICEF's nonviolence project aims to challenge commonly held beliefs that violence against children is acceptable. The project alsoboosts parents' and other caregivers' awareness about child rights, strengthening their capacity to protect children against abuse, exploitation and violence.
