2006:

KAFA launched the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse: “Protecting children from violence: Their right - Our duty” National Campaign on November 19, 2006, in synergy with the anniversary of the International Day for the rights of the child (20 November). The yearly campaign draws inspiration from the Convention on the Rights of the Child which spells out the full range of basic human rights that children everywhere have, and emphasizes the primacy and importance of the role of parents, in mainly Articles 18, 19, and 34 http://www.unicef.org/crc/
The yearly event is organized to create a culture of prevention of abuse and violence against children, and to raise public awareness, and mobilize both opinion and actions towards protecting children from violence, exploitation, and neglect.
Stickers and flyers highlighting different forms of Child Abuse, along with a white flower as a message of peace and non-violence were distributed on the streets by children, youth and members of the Internal Security Forces.
Information posters appeared in schools, childhood protection NGOs, community centers and other public places to sensitize Lebanese society on the problem of Child Abuse.Information kits (poster, flyer, pin, and sticker) were distributed to parliamentarians, NGOS, Universities, Schools, Ministry Development Community Centers and Dispensaries.

2007:

A march of children was organized in coordination with Bourj Hammoud and Sin El Fil’s NGO Coordination Committee andThe Lebanese Child Home, the rally culminated in the painting of a mural on Naba’a Road and a circus performance with games and activities for children.
"Peace Pit-Stops” were set-up all over Lebanon to distribute informational material on Child Abuse and to raise awareness on the plight of exploited and vulnerable children, and to promote messages of peace and non-violence.

2008:

In its third year, the campaign was further broadened to include two days of “Peace Pit-Stops”, engaging children and parents, and four days of campaigning in schools, during which brochures and flyers were distributed.
Peaceful manifestations were organized for 30 minutes in all the main cities, with the participation of children, parents, educators, and decision makers.
A central gathering took place in front of the parliament (downtown Beirut); where children voiced their recommendations in front of MP Gilberte Zwein, head of the parliamentary committee for women and children issues, and called on to stop and penalize all violent mechanisms used in schools including physical enforcement of discipline. On another level, participants demanded stricter media monitoring to avoid the dissemination of pornography and violence. Highlighted as well as was the need to eliminate the remaining of cluster bombs in the South. 2009:


2009:

The campaign’s activities adopted a multifaceted approach to the issue starting with a press conference held at the Safir Heliopolitan Hotel under the patronage of the Minister of Social Affairs, Dr. Salim Sayegh, who stressed the parents’ role in preventing child abuse. The conference was followed by an exposition, gathering NGOs working on child abuse in Lebanon. Since there is a lack of a proper platform for organizations active against child abuse, the event provided an opportunity for networking and information sharing among all contributing partners.
Children from all over the country participated in the campaign through the local “Peace Pit-Stops”. Flyers and stickers were distributed in addition to informational brochures about child abuse and the preventive measures needed. The material widely circulated in the country highlighted the right of children to protection, educational instructions for parents, as well as a list of participating NGOs, addressing the issue and offering additional information.
Furthermore, the Ministry Development Community Centers all over the country organized events and sessions related to the campaign, focusing on the role of parents and the crucial need to adopt preventive measures against child abuse.
