Who We Are

The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children is a unique public-private collaboration that includes United Nations agencies, governments, industry, regional bodies, civil society, young people, advocates and champions, all focused on one thing: making the world safe for children.

Our History

September 2015

World leaders made a commitment to end all forms of violence against children by 2030, as part of the Sustainable Development Goals. This moment presents an historic opportunity to unite the world behind a global, national and local movement to protect the world’s most precious asset; its children.

July 2016

The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children and its associated fund are launched to help achieve an ambitious undertaking; ending violence against children in every country, every community and every family. The launch event took place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and saw attendance of government ministers, the U.N. secretary-general, young people from Central America, foundation and civil society leaders.

February 2018

The first Solutions Summit was held in Stockholm, Sweden. It was a crucial meeting in our common responsibility to combat violence against children. It brought together, every two years, governments, the UN, civil society, the private sector, academics and children themselves to design and share bold solutions for preventing and responding to violence against boys and girls

September 2018

The End Violence Board approved our new strategy for 2019-2021. Building on progress made in the first two years of the Partnership, we are now well positioned to scale the impact of the Global Partnership in the next 3 years.
