This week, government and civil society representatives from 20 countries, as well as experts working on the topics of social protection and violence prevention and response, gather in Swaziland to discuss ways to translate data on violence against girls and boys into concrete measures to stop it.

In a village near Mbabane, Khanyisile Simelane is conducting her own meeting, talking to a group of children about abuse. Ms. Simelane is part of an army of volunteers known as Lihlombe Lekukhalela, meaning 'a shoulder to cry on' in SiSwati, who are helping child victims of abuse -- and letting them know they are not alone.
