DFID is committed to reducing violence through dedicated investments to protect children, alongside interventions embedded in wider development and humanitarian programming.

Current examples of support include: £5.75 million to the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children to drive international ambition and progress, including the Safe to Learn campaign that will inspire action to end violence in schools around the world; £10m to UNICEF to prevent and respond to violence, abuse and exploitation of children on the move in Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan through a strengthened child protection system; and £65m to the No Lost Generation Initiative in Lebanon to support Syrian children with education and psychosocial support.
