The End Violence Partnership is hosting the Together to #ENDviolence Leaders’ Event.
The Together to #ENDviolence campaign was launched by the End Violence Partnership in December 2020 to raise awareness, share solutions, and catalyze action and investment to end violence against children. The Leaders’ Event on 14th June 2022 will be the culmination of 18 months of events held and commitments made around the world.
ONE BILLION CHILDREN.
That’s how many girls and boys suffer from violence every year.
Together to #ENDviolence, a global campaign and Solutions Summit Series, is here to change that.
Violence is an epidemic of abuse that undermines all other investments made in children, with devastating long-term consequences. Despite the scale and impact of violence against children – and the proven evidence-based solutions that exist – we still lack the political commitments and financial investments that are urgently needed to keep children safe at home, online, at school and within communities. And without the proper investment, the effects of violence against children will continue to cost up to 5% of the world’s GDP.
On top of that, COVID-19 has increased children’s risk of violence in every country and community. As a result of the pandemic, 85 million more girls and boys may be exposed to physical, sexual and emotional violence. COVID-19 has also placed new pressures on both national budgets and international donors, jeopardising already-limited investments to end violence against children, along with years of progress. Without urgent, unified action, we could lose a generation of children to the lifelong effects of violence.
Together to #ENDviolence is inspiring the end violence community and catalysing the political and financial commitments needed to end violence against children for good. As we enter the Decade of Action to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals, this global campaign will accelerate action as the world builds back safer for children – during COVID-19 and beyond.
Together, we are a powerful partnership of over 600 organisations. Together, we are a part of the solution. Will you join us?
