Donor Name: The Fund to End Violence Against Children
Funding name: The Fund to End Violence Against Children
Funding brief: The Fund to End Violence Against Children supports activities to achieve the vision of the Global Partnership – A world in which every child grows up free from violence.
Specifically, the Fund provides financial support to programs and activities that further the Partnership’s goal of accelerating action in three priority areas:
● Preventing “on-line” violence, with a particular focus on sexual exploitation.
● Addressing violence in the every-day lives of children, with an initial focus on investments in Pathfinder countries and sub-national actors to implement evidence based programming.
● Addressing the prevention of violence against children facing conflict and crisis.
Although children have long been exposed to violence and exploitation, the internet and new technologies have changed the opportunity, scale, form and impact of the abuse of young people everywhere. Globally, children face new dangers that are often poorly understood by policymakers and the public, and online sexual exploitation and abuse is one of the most urgent of these emerging risks.
Supported by grants from the Government of the United Kingdom and Human Dignity Foundation, and in partnership with the WePROTECT Global Alliance, the Fund to End Violence against Children is looking to fund organizations at the country, regional and global levels whose work seeks to achieve the intended impact of preventing violence against children online, with a particular focus on Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE).
Deadline: Applications can be submitted from 17 July to at 23:59EDT 30 September 2017.

Eligibility: Proposals are encouraged from:
1. Countries seeking to develop a national action plan to tackle online child sexual exploitation
Proposals supporting national action through the funding of national action plans based on the Model National Response (MNR) – as described in Annex B – are gladly received.
A strong application will be able to articulate the steps required to develop a Government led multi-stakeholder national action plan, which may include but is not limited to:
● Threat picture – demonstrable understanding of the threat posed to that country from online CSE, the risks of it escalating and consequences without appropriate intervention.
● Gap analysis – a review of the current national response to preventing and tackling the threat,using the MNR as a framework.
● Sequencing – the logical steps towards developing a comprehensive, multi-stakeholder national action plan and the capabilities which represent the critical foundations of a comprehensive, multi-stakeholder response.
● Privatization – Prioritizing the development of the required capabilities and working with the national government to agree on the priority order.
● Accountability – how the relevant lead government department will remain accountable for the plan’s development and detail of the mechanisms to be put in place to ensure all relevant government institutions participate.
● Measurable commitments – the importance of the lead government department collaborating with participatory institutions to agree on measurable commitments that will inform the plan’s major milestones.
● Transparency – how decisions will be made and who will be involved, including why the decision is needed, when, and how they are communicating this internally and externally.
● Stakeholder participation – the level of participation needed from stakeholders to ensure the assessment and the development of the action plan is carried out in full consultation with the required stakeholders in country.
● Cost to develop a plan – the likely costs associated with developing a national action plan and commissioning the expertise required.
● Monitoring and Evaluation – the mechanism for monitoring and evaluating progress against the relevant Fund objectives and success indicators.
● Co-funding – an indication of the applicant country’s commitment to allocating funds and/or resources to the development of a National Action Plan.
● Child Participation – a plan for appropriate and meaningful child participation.
- Regional organizations that seek to mobilize their membership towards national action
Proposals are encouraged from regional and international organizations who wish to engage their membership to generate (a) awareness of the threat in all countries within their region that are ODA eligible (though some limited funding is available for activities in countries that are not ODA eligible); and, (b) commitment from countries to develop an action plan to prevent and tackle online CSE. This may include but is not limited to the following:
● undertaking a baseline assessment of the capacity and capability of member countries to respond to online CSE;
● using the Model National Response to conduct a gap analysis of member national responses to online CSE;
● reviewing existing regional mechanisms for collective action of member countries in tackling online CSE.
In putting together a proposal, regional and international applicants should consider the following:
● whether the proposed activity will enhance existing national programmes in countries dedicated to tackling online CSE and the support of those national governments;
● the commitment to encouraging non-signatories of the WePROTECT Global Alliance to signup and enhance their national response to online CSE;
● how limited funds for activities in countries that are not ODA eligible countries will enhance the overall programme of awareness raising in regions where the majority of countries are ODA eligible; and,
● the regional organization will put in place effective reporting and monitoring and evaluation mechanisms to ensure that the funds are being used as intended.
- Organizations that build capacity and capability to tackle the threat globally and enhance the quality and consistency of delivery of MNR capabilities
To ensure organizations with MNR expertise can deliver against demand from countries for support with the development and implementation of national action plans, there is a need to enhance the quality and consistency of how MNR capabilities are delivered on a global level.
We are therefore seeking proposals from organizations with a proven track record of CSE subject matter expertise and which seek to work together to enhance the quality and consistency of how an MNR capability is delivered on a global level. All organizations applying should consider the following:
● A proven track record of delivery of activity to prevent and tackle online child sexual exploitation at either a national or transnational level; this applies to both a ‘lead’ organization and any others that form part of a collaborative application.
● Demonstrate how enhancing the quality and consistency of the specific MNR capability will support countries in the implementation of their national action plans.
● Commitment of any supporting partner organizations to the application to collaborating and coordinating, and the mechanisms that will be put in place to achieve this.
● Demonstrate how the organization will collaborate with other leading organizations who are also working to build global capacity in a specific MNR capability/capabilities; and,
● Describe how the organization, and partners, will put in place adequate reporting and monitoring and evaluation mechanisms to confirm that the funds are being used as intended.
