Thirty people in Lebanon representing social organizations and schools such as the Sisters of the Holy Family Maronite Development Association, the Association of Childhood, the Antonine sisters, two journalists, a photographer, a television reporter, and various city government officials, and 10 Lebanese and Syrian children age 8-15 years attended.

Journalist Sawt el Mada asked if it is dangerous for children to attend a conference of this kind. The children present responded by recounting their personal experiences, what they hear on the street and what they see in the media. They appealed to have the right to participate in such conferences and have correct and pertinent information to lead their lives and to defend themselves in case of danger. They also stated their desire to participate in future seminars to educate and provide proper knowledge.

A number of participants stressed the importance of awareness and the creation of laws to protect children, especially against the sexual abuse and exploitation of small Syrian girls who are the prime victims.

The meeting had a good impact and all of the presenters expressed their thoughts to the assembly. The conclusion that everyone agreed on was the rejection of all forms of violence and coercion in marriage and child trafficking.
