Every five minutes, a child dies as a result of violence. An estimated 120 million girls and 73 million boys have been victims of sexual violence, and almost one billion children are subjected to physical punishment on a regular basis. 

As part of Agenda 2030, the world’s governments have set ambitious targets to end violence by 2030, in order to deliver the vision of a world where all children – girls and boys alike – grow up free from violence and exploitation.

The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children will support the efforts of those seeking to prevent violence, protect childhood, and help make societies safe for children.

 

 

The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children offers an opportunity to help governments, international organizations, civil society, faith leaders, the private sector, philanthropists and foundations, researchers and academics work together to confront the unacceptable levels of violence that children suffer.

What is the Global Partnership?

We need to change the way that policymakers, campaigners and the public think about ending violence, winning the argument that we should – and can – make societies safer for children. The global partnership will bring together stakeholders from across the world to end all forms of violence against children, 

turning the belief that no violence against children is justifiable and all violence is preventable into a compelling agenda for action. The Fund to End Violence against Children will be independent of, but associated with, the partnership. It will provide catalytic finance to support the delivery of the partnership’s strategy.
