United in our commitment to end the global crisis of sexual violence against children, Together for Girls partners work across sectors, disciplines, and geographies. Our values provide a shared understanding of how we can work together to create a safer world.

Together for Girls strives to create an agile, courageous, collaborative, empathetic, and respectful culture. We aspire to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout our partnership. We hold ourselves accountable for our values by integrating them throughout our work.
