Home Affairs recognizes child abuse prevention month

The TCI Ministry of Home Affairs, Transportation and Communications is continuing efforts to sensitize the public on child abuse during National Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month. To commemorate the month, which is recognized internationally in April, the Ministry’s Department of Social Development has engaged communities and schools with presentations and literature on the issue. The Ministry has also hosted a high school debate competition in addition to partnering with the corporate sector and the United Nations Children’s Fund.  The theme for this year’s CAP month is “Nurture and Protect Me. Do not Abuse and Neglect Me.” Ministry interventions have been geared towards ensuring citizens can identify signs of abuse, sexual abuse in particular, and are aware of the procedures for reporting child abuse. The Department of Social Development is reminding the public that there is a zero tolerance policy on child abuse.
