We have an historic opportunity to work together to bring an end to violence against girls and boys.
Ignite Philanthropy is a pooled donor fund, created to advance the work of the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children and spark progress toward related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It maximizes philanthropy’s collective ability to take risks and act boldly to support evidence-based solutions that improve the lives of girls and boys.
Violence against girls and boys is a chronic global pandemic, affecting 3 in 4 children each year. But violence is preventable and, by working in partnership to support proven solutions, we can help end it.
Ignite Philanthropy takes advantage of philanthropy’s unique role, flexibility, and ability to act quickly to empower partners and allies. Initial priorities are to help build a robust Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children, fueled by powerful grassroots voices, with a strong resource base.
As implementation begins for the SDGs, there are historic openings for efforts to end violence against girls and boys. The SDGs offer a rare chance to energize international, regional, national, and local initiatives behind a universal mandate for action, resources, and results. Those efforts can now be informed by INSPIRE’s unprecedented scientific consensus around the drivers, consequences, and solutions to violence against children.
