Together for Girls was founded in 2009. It is a global public-private partnership dedicated to ending violence against children, especially sexual violence. The partnership includes six UN agencies and more than 20 countries (covering every continent), and several private sector organisations. One of the most important efforts of TfG has been the promotion of comprehensive Violence Against Children Surveys (VACS), which by 2020 will have been done or be underway in enough countries to provide extensive data on 20 per cent of the world’s children.
