Analytics & reporting
Violence against children and adolescents is a prevalent and devastating global crisis. Sexual violence is a notable taboo, and often hidden, form of violence. Across the globe, between 4-35% of girls and 1-21% of boys experience sexual violence before their 18th birthday. Childhood sexual violence takes on many forms and it can happen to anyone.
We envision a world where every child and adolescent is safe, protected, and thriving. Decades of research show how effective solutions can prevent sexual violence, with policies and programs to ensure survivors access healing and justice.
Together for Girls was created to work across sectors with a comprehensive and holistic approach to preventing and responding to violence. We understand that a multi-faceted problem like violence requires multi-sectoral, radically collaborative solutions. Our partners include survivor activists, civil society, national governments, United Nations entities, and the world’s foremost leaders in global health, gender equity, development, and violence prevention and response.
