Call for Proposals 2017  

Online Child Sexual Exploitation

Although children have long been exposed to violence and exploitation, the internet and new technologies have changed the opportunity, scale, form and impact of the abuse of young people everywhere. Globally, children face new dangers that are often poorly understood by policymakers and the public, and online sexual exploitation and abuse is one of the most urgent of these emerging risks.


Supported by grants from the Government of the United Kingdom and Human Dignity Foundation, and in partnership with the WePROTECT Global Alliance, the Fund to End Violence against Children is looking to fund organisations at the country, regional and global levels whose work seeks to achieve the intended impact of preventing violence against children online, with a particular focus on Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE). 


Applications can be submitted from 17 July to 30 September 2017 at View the Call for Proposals below. Visit the application portal for more information on the Fund including how to submit grant proposals.
