Together for Girls is a global public-private partnership dedicated to ending violence against children, with a particular focus on sexual violence against girls. Founded in 2009, the Together for Girls partnership brings together national governments, UN agencies and private sector organizations to prevent and respond to violence, as a fundamental step to achieving individual rights and well-being, gender equality, and sustainable development.
Using the data from the Violence Against Children Surveys – led by CDC as part of the Together for Girls partnership – as our guide, TfG partners work with national governments and civil society to spark progress to prevent and respond to violence. 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 girls and boys.
