Violence is devastating for children, affecting their health, obstructing their education and diminishing their chances for a life free from poverty and discrimination. The impact of violence goes beyond the individual children, affecting families and communities, slowing economic development and eroding human and social capital.

In the face of conflict, the choice to leave your home behind isn't always a choice.

As an armed conflict in her village intensified, Madeleine, 47, had to consider two terrifying options: stay in her home and risk her family's safety, or leave and risk the unknown.
