At least 1 out of 2 children has experienced some form of violence and 18 million girls aged between 15 and 19 have experienced sexual abuse.

The Swedish Government, in collaboration with the Global Partnership to End Violence against Children and WePROTECT Global Alliance, hosted the Agenda 2030 for Children, End Violence Solutions Summit in Stockholm, Sweden, on 14 and 15 February 2018.

Government ministers from 20 countries, youth delegates and high-level representatives of UN bodies, civil society, the academic world and the private sector participated in the conference.

The purpose of the conference was to share good experiences and new solutions in work to end violence against children.

ChildFund Alliance was represented by Secretary General Meg Gardinier; Laurence Cambianica of Educo; Angeles Belén Cowan Ruiz, age 17, from Paraguay; and Luisa Futboe, age 16, from Indonesia. Our youth representatives were accompanied by Maria Ferreira and Reny Haning.

About ChildFund Alliance EU Office

ChildFund Alliance EU Office is a member-led initiative set up in close coordination with the ChildFund Alliance Secretariat. It was established in Brussels in 2014 to strengthen cooperation with European Union institutions. The Brussels office has two main strategic goals:

  • To advocate with key EU institutions for policies, programs and funding opportunities to promote children rights.
  • To promote and increase access to funding opportunities provided by the EU.


ChildFund Alliance EU Office works to strengthen the engagement and cooperation of ChildFund Alliance with EU institutions. ChildFund Alliance EU Office works together with other organizations, including United Nations agencies and NGOs, to promote children's rights as a priority in the EU’s external action.

ChildFund Alliance is a member of CONCORD, the European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs and the main interlocutor with the EU institutions on development policy.

In Brussels, ChildFund Alliance is also a member of the Children's Rights Action Group, a coalition of 18 NGOs committed to making children’s rights a priority of the EU agenda. The coalition supports the Intergroup on Children’s Rights, the first formal body in the European Parliament that will mainstream children’s rights and promote the interests and well-being of children everywhere.
