In a world that is rapidly changing, children are faced with complex challenges and unprecedented opportunities. It is to be accepted that still in Sri Lanka there exist Social and cultural norms that tolerate emotional, physical and sexual violence against children.

Despite their best intentions, many parents and caregivers cannot properly identify and respond to threats to the safety and protection of their children. Children with disabilities are particularly at risk. A general lack of awareness in this area has resulted in these abuses.

Further, parents, teachers and children are often unaware of how to access and utilize child protection services even if a violation is experienced. Although there are a massive number of child abuse cases reported, going forward coordination mechanisms and avenues for referral of child protection cases have been developed in Sri Lanka .

Gender-based Violence (GBV) is one of the most prevalent human rights violations in the world and it refers to harmful acts directed at an individual based on their gender. It is rooted in gender inequality, the abuse of power and harmful norms. It is estimated that one in three women will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime.
