What We Do

Since its inception in 2016, the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children has worked from the local to global levels to achieve our vision: a world in which every child grows up in a safe, secure and nurturing environment. We work with and through partners large and small — from governments to international organisations, civil society, and children themselves — to prevent and respond to all forms of violence against children.

Pathfinding countries

Pathfinding aims to establish a standard of national violence prevention throughout the world. We work with governments and partners across sectors to raise awareness, stimulate leadership commitment, and galvanize action to end all forms of violence against children. Currently, 38 countries have joined the Pathfinding Initiative and are using the evidence-based INSPIRE strategies to ensure that children are safe from all forms of violence.

Safe Online

In a world where children are more interconnected online than ever, Safe Online has been leading on the global efforts and supporting the wider ecosystem to make the internet safe for children by investing significant financial resources to strengthen systems, generate evidence and design technology solutions.  Safe Online also fosters a strong collaborative network of partners across sectors to share knowledge, best practices and solutions, along with coordinating joint efforts to put child online safety at the heart of key policy debates at national, regional and global level.

Safe to Learn

The Safe to Learn global initiative focuses on ending violence in and through schools. As a coalition of major partners from the Education, Child Protection, Violence Prevention and Health communities, Safe to Learn supports collective action and investments to keep girls and boys safe wherever they learn so that they can fulfill their potential and enjoy their learning experience.

End Corporal Punishment

End Corporal Punishment catalyses progress towards the universal elimination of corporal punishment of children. The initiative advocates for, monitors, and provides technical support to achieve and implement law reform to prohibit violent forms of punishment across the world.


INSPIRE is a package of seven key strategies to eliminate violence against children. Backed by the best available evidence, it is a technical resource for countries and communities to intensify their efforts in preventing, responding to, and reducing violence.

Together to #ENDviolence

Together to #ENDviolence is a global campaign to promote solutions, advocate for new political and financial commitments, inspire action and strengthen the movement to end violence against children.
