Together for Girls is a global partnership working to end violence against children and adolescents, particularly sexual violence against girls and other vulnerable populations.
Founded in 2009, our powerful partnership unites actors that often do not work together, including national governments, United Nations entities, U.S. government agencies, the private sector, civil society, and — critically — survivors.
Together for Girls partners are global leaders in development, violence prevention and response. Each partner contributes unique expertise and skills to strengthen our collective impact at national, regional, and global levels.
Using data from the Violence Against Children and Youth Surveys (VACS), the Together for Girls partnership works with national governments and civil society to prevent and respond to violence. The VACS are led by national governments, with technical assistance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as part of the Together for Girls (TfG) partnership.
These efforts include strengthening capacity in-country, and providing strategic guidance, training, technical assistance, and funding when possible. These actions, along with appropriate budget and accountability measures, will lead to better prevention, improved health outcomes, and a sustainable protection system for all children and adolescents.
