Fund to End Violence Against Children

WePROTECT and UNICEF Fund to End Violence Against Children launch campaign


The WePROTECT Global Alliance brings together, for the first time, both the political will and the resources to end the sexual exploitation of children online.  It is working in partnership with the new Fund to End Violence Against Children to deliver a global program of capacity and capability, with an initial donation of £40m from the UK government.  The Fund will be hosted by UNICEF and the WePROTECT Global Alliance Board will be responsible for advising how to prioritise its activities for maximum impact.

The Board and the UK government are working with the Fund to seek further donors to support this critical work and identify interventions that can make a real difference to the lives of children worldwide.  For further information, and to find out how to make a bid to the Fund, visit
