Together for Girls
Together for Girls (TfG) is a global partnership that brings together the world’s preeminent public health agencies, governments and the private sector in a shared commitment to end violence against children, with a particular focus on sexual violence and girls. Launched at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2009, with a small secretariat established in 2011, TfG is now active in 21 countries, using a unique data-driven approach across three pillars of action to support governments and communities in efforts to eliminate this global scourge and its associated impact.
TfG partners, working closely with national governments, are contributing across three pillars of action:
1. National surveys and data to document the magnitude, nature and impact of physical, emotional, and sexual violence against children to inform government leaders, civil society and donors.
2. Evidence-based coordinated policy and program actions in countries to address issues identified through the surveys, including legal and policy reform, improved services for children who have experienced violence and prevention programs.
3. Global advocacy and public awareness efforts to draw attention to the problem and promote evidence-based solutions.
