Our Work to Prevent Violence Against Children

Up to a billion children experience violence every year. This violence has far-reaching consequences for children, their families and their communities. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Violence against children is preventable.

Our practices address systems that influence children's lives. We work with the education sector, community-based organizations and leaders to prevent violence against children.

Searching questions are embedded in everything we do: Why and how do we do it? What changes emerge? And how can we do it more efficiently? We create the space to ask those questions and adopt a learning posture, with a clear intention to center children’s voices and perspectives.

Holistic Engagement to Transform Children’s Experiences

Supporting Partners Through Crisis

We as children now have a collective voice. …We [are] no longer scared to ask teachers [what we want] for fear that we will be abused or [that the] teacher will say no. We have come to realize that the teachers are now highly concerned and respond to us; they are no longer as tough as they were before.
