Vision 2030

A world in which every child grows up safe and secure

Our Mission

Make societies safer for children and end violence against children everywhere


Our objectives are mutually reinforcing. Growing demand for change shifts the environment in which we mobilize resources and broker the support that practitioners need to make a difference. In turn, progress on the ground builds the evidence that further strengthens demand for change and the case for investment.

Grow demand

Catalyze a global movement to raise awareness, increase understanding, change thinking, and inspire action.

Mobilize new resources

Make a compelling investment case and mobilize resources for everyone working to end violence.

Equip practitioners

Identify and share solutions, expertise and resources with all those working to end violence, including through the End Violence Fund

How we deliver change

For further details, please contact the secretariat team.

Investment Case

We are making the case that ending violence against children is not just the right thing to do. It’s also a smart investment to make. The investment case will include a financial analysis of the costs of interventions to end violence against children, and the return on those investments.

Opportunity 2019

In 2019, we have an historic opportunity to accelerate more and better action to end violence against children. The backbone of the opportunity is made-up of three UN-led moments: the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) assessment of progress against SDG 16 (July 2019), the Heads of Government assessment of progress against all SDGs (September 2019), and the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (November 2019).

Resource Mobilization

We are currently preparing a full resource mobilization strategy for the coming years to mobilize resources for everyone working to end violence, including the End Violence Fund and Secretariat.

End Violence Fund

The Fund provides financial support to programs and activities that further the Partnership’s goal of accelerating action. Three donors have committed $68 million to the End Violence Fund, of which $33 million has been received, and $29.4 million disbursed to grantees.

Safe to Learn Campaign

Every child deserves to be safe and secure in school so that they can learn, grow and develop the skills and confidence they need to lead healthy and prosperous lives. Ending violence in and around schools requires coordinated efforts at multiple levels. We are bringing together a 'Coalition of Coalitions' to make that happen

Country Engagement

In 2018, the number of Pathfinders has almost doubled, from 13 to 23. We call on governments to make public commitments to accelerate action towards achieving SDG 16.2, including with a 3 to 5-year action plan.
