Violence against children is everywhere but it's often hidden behind closed doors, according to the UN Children's Fund.

The agency estimates that about 20 per cent of women and up to 10 per cent of men report being sexually abused as a child.

To fight this crime, UNICEF supports projects like Childline Kenya, an NGO that operates a 24-hour, toll free helpline where children can report abuse and get protection.

Jocelyne Sambira has the story.
