Together we can reach and protect more children

This year Child Helpline International celebrates the 10th anniversary of the European directive reserving the number 116111 to child helplines in Europe.

The number 116111 is specifically for children who seek assistance and need someone to talk to. The service helps children in need of care and protection and links them to the appropriate services and resources; it provides children with an opportunity to express their concerns and talk about issues directly affecting them.

Child helplines throughout Europe share the same mission – to hear all the voices at the other end of the phone and ease their worries.

On the 10th anniversary of the Child Support Hotline was launched a new video called “One Voice, One Number”. This shows the positive impact that child helplines have on children's lives by actively listening to them, providing unbiased support and empowering them to fulfill their own potential, every day, everywhere.

Statement Regarding Recent Attacks in France and Lebanon

This week has been a shock to our world, as terrorist attacks left hundreds dead, even more wounded, and entire nations in mourning. On Thursday, November 12th, Lebanon’s capital Beirut was hit by a tragic double-suicide bombing. The next day, France’s capital Paris was targeted. Both attacks resulted in carnage and agony. 
Armenian Association of Social workers expresses its solidarity with the people of Lebanon and France, and thinks especially of those who have lost and those who worked and continue to work to provide much needed support. AASW believes in the power of social work to uphold values of democracy, solidarity, and compassion at times like this. 
We hope for the nations of our world to look towards a peaceful future, even in these darkest of days.
