The study employed qualitative research methodology. It used both primary and secondary data sources. The primary data were collected through unstructured interview. The participants of interview were selected through purposive sampling. The secondary data were collected from different books, journal articles, and report papers. According to the findings of the study, there was family violence against children in Debre Markos town. As a result, there were various programs which were designed and carried out by various government and non-government organizations.
