How We Work

To break the cycle of violence.

The evidence is clear: There is strength in numbers. A multi-sector, coordinated response reduces violence against girls and boys, and helps keep them safe from harm. Together for Girls has a three-pronged approach to prevent and respond to violence.

National surveys and data - led by CDC as part of the Together for Girls partnership -
to document the magnitude, nature and impact of physical, emotional, and sexual violence against girls and boys to inform government leaders, communities, civil society and donors.

Led by UNICEF, evidence-based coordinated policy and program actions in countries to address issues identified through the surveys, including legal and policy reform, improved services for girls and boys who have experienced violence, and prevention programs.

Global advocacy and public awareness efforts to bring attention to the problem, promote evidence-based solutions, and provide a platform for survivors, young people, and advocates to share their stories.
