ASTSS is a partner in a global collaboration between all Traumatic Stress Societies around the world. As a united international entity we have decided to address child abuse as a global problem of priority.
An application for funding has now been made to a Canadian funding body called "Grand Challenges". Part of the evaluation process involves production of a video and then voting on the importance of that idea.
Grand Challenges has now released the video applications for the "Stars in Global Health" competition.
I am writing to ask you to please view our two-minute video and cast your vote in support of our application.
Our application is titled “I-CAN: International approach to Child Abuse and Neglect - a mobile phone application.” This application is the first step in a global collaboration that aims to help survivors of child abuse and neglect around the world.
Go directly to our video, by following the link below.
The link below will take you to the page containing all videos.
Please support this important initiative. Every vote counts!
