Children and violence

Fondation Marienburg


Focusing on the child's perspective


Violence against children in our society comes in many different forms: physical violence, maltreatment, emotional abuse, neglect, sexual abuse or intimidation. Teenagers may also be a source of disruption withintheir family or school environment with violent acts such as insults, beatings, intimidation or self-harm.
Children who are victims or witnesses of any type of violence need appropriate supervision and care.
The project entitled "Psychosocial Educational monitoring" aims to engage victims and perpetrators in a process of prevention, socialisation and learning. The goal is to teach young people the tools to prevent violence, react to it and to help themselves and others find a personal and social balance. Priority is given to the individual needs of each child. Collaboration between the adolescent, his family and other professional services in the social sector is also established as needed.
This project is implemented by the Luxembourgish association "La Main Tendue d’Angela” (Angela’s Helping Hand), a listening-based help centre for children and families suffering from physical, psychological and sexual violence.


Fondation Marienburg’s support enables the hiring of a child psychologist for 20 hours per week.
