Highlighting three years of our partnership’s achievements

Together for Girls is proud to share “Building a Safer World,” our 2019-2021 Stakeholder Report. This report highlights three years of global collaboration as a partnership, generating quality data, raising awareness of solutions and galvanizing change. 

 

With the increased risks of violence against children during COVID-19 and beyond, our partnership’s mission is more urgent than ever. However, the results of our collective effort demonstrate that when we work together, we can successfully respond to global challenges that once seemed insurmountable.

The power of partnership

The Together for Girls partnership made incredible progress in the past three years. The evidence is clear: There is strength in numbers. By working together, across sectors, we can break the cycle of violence against children and adolescents and build back a safer world for generations to come.
