Want to make an impact for children across the world? End Violence is hiring a technical specialist to support the child online safety window of the End Violence Fund.
About the End Violence Fund
Since 2016, the End Violence Fund has invested over $32 million in 37 projects across 27 countries to combat online child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA), as well as three regional and seven global projects. Funded initiatives implement a wide range of activities to both prevent and respond to online child sexual exploitation and abuse. In September 2019, the End Violence Fund launched a $13 million Open Call for solutions focused on leveraging new and existing digital technologies (artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, blockchain, virtual reality, etc.) to enhance detection and response to online violence and prevent known and emerging threats. In early summer 2020, this open call will translate into a new cohort of End Violence grantees working on cutting edge tools to make children safe online.
In addition to financial resources, the Fund has invested in communication and training materials, skills development, and opportunities to support learning and build a culture that values collaboration. More specifically, the Fund has supported grantees via tailored technical support, networking facilitation, a series of Knowledge Exchange Webinars and in-person grantee convenings. From 2020, the Fund will also host a Child Online Safety Community Portal to co-create with grantees a repository of collective knowledge and high-quality resources to address online child sexual exploitation and abuse and child online safety.
