Sauti toll free telephone line helping Ugandan children avert violence

Uganda has sub-Saharan Africa’s only government-run child helpline--a free way for children to report physical, emotional, and sexual violence perpetrated against them. Police are supposed to work with probation officers to investigate the situation and connect children with medical and legal help. However, resource shortages remain, and some health workers refer victims to private clinics to make more money.
