The Fund

The End Violence Fund serves as a vehicle for change on the ground. We provide financial support to programmes around the world, contributing to projects that deliver practical, innovative and effective solutions to end violence against children.

The partnership and the fund power one another: while partners share their approaches, push action, and advocate to governments, the Fund feeds into our ecosystem as a partnership, providing a source of solutions from which partners can learn, adapt and replicate. The solutions are shared both within the End Violence partnership and beyond, supporting the overall movement to end all forms of violence against children.

We are currently investing in two windows of our Fund: Safe Online and Safe to Learn. In years past, we have also funded projects to protect children in humanitarian crisis.

Since its inception in 2016, the Fund has raised over $73 million for children, awarding over $42.6 million to 55 projects in 50 countries, including seven global and three regional projects. These projects focus on tackling online child sexual exploitation and abuse, keeping children safe in and through schools, and preventing violence against children affected by conflicts and crises.
