We Are Governments. Civil Society. UN Agencies. Academics. Research Practitioners. International Organizations. Faith Groups. Private Sector. Children. United for Children.
The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children is where all major stakeholder groups come together to focus their words, actions and resources on ending violence against children - a unique public private partnership for all actors to hold themselves to account and work together to prevent and respond to violence against children.

Our Value Proposition
This is the only partnership in the world where all major stakeholder groups come together to focus their words, actions and resources on ending violence against children.
While the partnership is supported by a small secretariat, its power is in convening the worlds’ political, development, humanitarian and financial leaders, uniting at one global table. Together these leaders commit to using their collective action and voice coupled with coordinated political and financial capital to change laws and policies; implement evidence based multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder action plans; share lessons learned; and mutually hold each other accountable.
The first Solutions Summit was held in Stockholm, Sweden, on 14-15 February 2018. 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
