Resource Mobilization Consultant

End Violence Against Children

1 April 2020 to 15 March 2021 (11 ½ months)

 

 Background

Every year, over 1 billion children experience violence.Violence in childhood undermines all other investments in children; in their health, education and development, often with negative lifelong consequences and intergenerational impact.

Recognizing the devastating impacts of violence against children, in 2015 world leaders committed to end all forms of violence, abuse and neglect by 2030, as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.  In July 2016, the UN Secretary-General launched the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children and an associated Fund.

The Partnership includes governments, UN agencies, international organizations, civil society, faith groups, the private sector, philanthropic foundations, research practitioners, academics and children themselves – uniting their voices, actions and resources in a unique public-private collaboration focused solely on ending violence against all children.

In its first three years, the Partnership has: enrolled 26 governments as ‘Pathfinder’ countries; grown its membership to over 350 organizations; helped develop and promote the INSPIRE solutions to end violence; awarded $38 million in grants to tackle online child sexual abuse, and violence against children in conflict and crises; and galvanized those working to end violence through an inaugural End Violence Solutions Summit.

Building on this initial progress, the Partnership Secretariat is evolving its strategy, operational approach and business model, to better support the collective impact of the Partnership and lay the foundations for systemic change at scale.

Heading into the scale-up phase, and in the lead up to the End Violence Solutions Summit planned for November 2020, the Secretariat will: raise awareness and grow demand for change; make a compelling investment case and mobilize new resources for everyone working to end violence against children; and get the solutions, expertise and resources to all those working to end violence.
