The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) South Africa commissioned the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to hold participatory consultations with children of different age groups to document their voices on issues related to their safety and protection, wellbeing and health based on the findings of the status of violence against children review report - 2020. Guided by the rights perspective, consultations explored children's responses to the findings of the report as children growing up in South Africa. The children's voices are used to communicate children's understanding of the status of violence against children in 2020 and what has changed in the last twenty years in relation to this topic. The consultations with school children in selected South African provinces focused on violence reported by various studies which occurs at home, in school, in the community and online.
