International Day to #EndCorporalPunishment 2022

Advocacy and communications pack

The International Day to #EndCorporalPunishment on 30 April is our opportunity to show support for all child victims of corporal punishment and call for better, faster protection of children as human rights holders.

Governments have committed to ending violence against children by 2030, but corporal punishment continues to blight billions of children’s lives worldwide. We know what works and we have eight years to #EndCorporalPunishment. Let’s call for urgent action to end corporal punishment of children all year round, and especially raise our voices between 25 – 30 April 2022. 


We are pleased to share the advocacy and communications pack with you and hope it supports your planning and work. The pack includes objectives, key messages, suggested actions, resources, social media assets and more. We will keep updating it as we get closer to 30 April.

If you have time do let us know what you are planning.


International Day to #EndCorporalPunishment: It’s time to act now!
