About Us

The Global Partnership and Fund to End Violence Against Children is an exciting new initiative bringing together a range of partners – public sector and private sector – to make a difference in the lives of children.  A means of implementation for the new Sustainable Development Goals and targets focused on violence, exploitation, abuse, neglect, torture trafficking and the like, this new Partnership is a test case of the universality of the new agenda. UNICEF is housing the Secretariat for this Partnership, which has an associated multi-donor trust fund.  That fund will help achieves the goals of the Partnership of which there are three:  building political will; accelerating action; and strengthening collaboration.   The fund will focus particularly on the acceleration of national and sub-national action in three context:  in the on-line lives of children; in their everyday lives at home, school and in their communities; and in contexts where children are escaping conflict and crisis.

For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
