Our work in
All children should grow up free from violence and exploitation. Yet there are one billion children around the world who are victims of violence.
For the one billion children who experience violence and exploitation, our child protection work is critical. As members of the ChildFund Alliance we work to ensure that global goals to end violence are translated into concrete, concerted and definitive actions in the communities where we work.
Advocates for protection
Leading up to the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ChildFund played a major role by advocating for the inclusion of a new target focused on ensuring children are free from all forms of violence and exploitation.
Target 16.2 was successfully included in the SDGs, and governments around the world are working together to help make it happen.
