Break the Silence on Childhood Violence (2017), a NDTV production for Know Violence in Childhood, animates the key messages emerging from Ending Violence in Childhood: Global Report 2017.

The 4-minute animation film skillfully uses a commonplace "thread" to denote the everyday experience of interpersonal violence by children in their lives and relationships, across homes, schools and communities.

The report makes recommendations for ending childhood violence based on an extensive review and synthesis of global evidence on effective violence-prevention strategies. The starting point for ending violence is to "break the silence".
