Description

The Elevate Children Funders Group (ECFG) was founded in 2011 by a group of private foundations working collectively in order to make key challenges facing children and youth a more significant global priority. With a focus on violence against children and alternative care/family strengthening, the group works at both international and national levels to build a stronger evidence base, strengthen advocates’ leadership and communication efforts, and mobilise more resources to support proven interventions.

The United Nations (UN) Summit for the Adoption of the Post 2015 Development Agenda scheduled for 25-27 September 2015 in New York will define the future global development agenda through 2030. The current report for the Summit cites 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDS) which includes several goals pertaining to Violence against Children (VaC).

Goals:

  • Prevent and protect children from violence;
  • Strengthen systems for family based care;
  • Reduce dependence on the institutionalization of children.

The purpose of the fund is to support advocacy and communications related to the Post 2015 Development Agenda, with the goal of securing the strongest possible language relating to VaC in the final documents.
