(ekklesia) – Concerned about the growing plight of children in many parts of Asia, church leaders will gather in Colombo, Sri Lanka from 28-31 August and from 1-4 September in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to evolve a strategy for mobilising churches to take a more active role in overcoming violence against children in both local and national contexts in Asia.
These two consultations, jointly organised by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA), will focus on creating a culture of peace for children at the community level through equipping churches to address the increasing trend of violence against children, especially in conflict-ridden countries in Asia .
