Abstract:

Tying shocking statistics to real stories, Make It Zero explores various forms of childhood vulnerability and offers specific ways for everyone to end them. It reveals the world of opportunity behind a single moment of compassion, and it teaches us that when we help the hopeless dream again, we ourselves come more alive.

They call us to fulfill our responsibility to children and build a world that is safe for every last one. When we help the hopeless dream again, we ourselves come more alive.
