A total of 25,468 Children were sexually abused between 2012 and 2014 with parents, teachers and neighbors perpetuating most of the cases.                      According to the domestic violence and victims support unit (DOVVSU) of Ghana police service 8,271Children were abused in 2012 with the figure rising to 8,617 in 2013 before marginally dropping to 8,580 in 2014 .        It is time to break the silence .we have reasons to worry with the increase numbers because child abuse does not only affects the children and their immediate families but the entire nation.child sexual abuse can be described as one of the dehumanizing act against the right and dignity of the child.when children are sexually abuse,it affects their emotions.’                     This is unacceptable and urge everyone to join the fight against child sexual abuse.
