"Keep me safe" from sexual violence

At the end of 2012, on the occasion of Universal Children’s Day, the Council of Europe has launched a television and web documentary entitled “Keep me safe”. This documentary illustrates good practices taking place in different Member States through prevention, education and protection of victims, and notably highlights the work conducted by "Hope for Children" - UNCRC Policy Center, a member of the European Council for Juvenile Justice since the very beginning.

Its Director General, Mr. Joseph Varughese, spoke about the need to upgrade Cyprus national law once the Lanzarote Convention will have been ratified (the Lanzarote Convention protects children from sexual exploitation and abuse) and rightfully suggested the creation of a Home for Children, which would welcome all children victims of sexual abuse.
