  • Every 5 minutes, somewhere in the world, a child is killed by violence.

  • Number of victims of human trafficking worldwide in 2018 = 85 613. Region with the highest number of victims worldwide in 2018 = South and Central Asia. Share of victims who were children in 2018 = 30%. Percentage of which were female victims trafficked for sexual exploitation = 77.5%.

  • Will you host your own #DiversityDinner by inviting your neighbours, friends or colleagues for an evening to share food, conversation and laughter? You could ask each of your friends to make a dish from a different culture to their own. Why not discuss the importance of cultural diversity in societies and the possible challenges facing your communities?*

  • Try the exercise Circle of Influence, described on page 125 of this publication. Invite few friends to join you.
