One in four girls and one in six boys
will become a victim of child sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.
1 in 5 children who uses a computer will be sexually solicited online.
Child sexual abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, in all religions and at all levels of education. Stranger danger does not usually apply – 90% of the time a child is assaulted, it is by someone they know.
Five percent. That’s it.
Only 5% of reported child sexual abuse cases end in conviction. Why? Because conviction requires the corroboration of the child’s story, but these acts mostly happen between the offender and child, with no witnesses.
There is hope.
We know how to prove and corroborate a child’s story, and our experts are traveling the country to share their knowledge. That’s the passion and purpose of Building hope today. We’re a 501(c)3 nonprofit and we assemble experts, provide support, foster collaboration, change the results, and change the statistics.
