IT’S A PENALTY IS THE GLOBAL MOVEMENT TO END CHILD EXPLOITATION AND ABUSE
SUPPORTED BY SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN SPORT
SPORT IS A FORCE FOR GOOD
The It’s a Penalty Campaign harnesses the power of sport to protect children from exploitation and abuse globally, positioning major sporting events as platforms for positive change.
It’s a Penalty works in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, advocating that ‘protection from any exploitation, abuse and violence is the right of every child’.
The huge influx of tourists and sporting fans to a country whilst a major sporting event is taking place – Rio saw an influx of 500,000 during the 2016 Olympics & Paralympics – increases the risk of children being exploited and abused.
TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD A WORLD IN WHICH NO CHILD FEELS VULNERABLE TO EXPLOITATION OR ABUSE.
