UNICEF is heightening its End Violence campaign with new focus on one of the most formative places in a child’s life and where they spend most of their time: school. To support the organisation’s work to end violence in schools, the END Violence campaign is hiring a global campaign manager.

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, an Advocate to ENDViolence

A child dies every five minutes as a result of violence. Countless others live with the scars of psychological, physical and sexual violence, from bullying to beatings. It happens everywhere, in rich countries and poor countries. It happens in everyday places with familiar faces. It happens in schools, where children should be safe and free to learn. Instead, violent discipline, bullying – including online – and attacks in schools are putting children's health and their development in risk.  It’s common enough to feel inevitable. But it’s not. Violence against children is preventable. And because we can prevent it, we must. It's time to fulfill our commitment to children's rights and wellbeing. We must make schools safe.
