Three out of four children in the world experience violence. Ending it calls for proven solutions.

The Evaluation Fund supports high-quality research evaluations of programs that are designed to prevent violence against children in low- and middle-income countries, so that all children can live a life free from violence.

ABOUT US

The Evaluation Fund supports high-quality research evaluations of programs that are designed to prevent violence against children in low- and middle-income countries, and we help improve the ability of researchers and advocates to effectively share what they have learned with audiences that matter.

Our projects

Since 2011, we have supported 17 research studies in 16 countries. Through a variety of methods and across a myriad of contexts, we have helped grow the evidence base on what works and what doesn’t to prevent violence against children.
