Global leaders and youth advocates launch new partnership and fund to end violence against children everywhere
Today at the United Nations children joined world leaders to launch a new partnership and fund to make ending violence a public priority and a collective responsibility. End Violence Against Children – The Global Partnership brings together governments, foundations, the UN, civil society, the academia, the private sector and young people in driving action toward achieving the new global target to end abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence and torture against children.
“The Global Partnership to End Violence against Children is mobilizing the world,” said United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. “There could be no more meaningful way to help realize the vision of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
