The African Partnership to End Violence against Children is a Pan-African platform established to promote an Africa-wide movement and conversation; and to contribute to global, continental, regional and national agenda on ending violence against children. It was also born of the need for a continental collective platform for innovation and cross-learning.

The Partnership draws from the opportunities but also the unique challenges of Africa, hence prioritises entrenching the violence against children agenda within the AU and Pan-African child rights mechanisms. Anchored within African values and reality, and as a platform initiated and led by Africans, the Partnership enjoys the moral legitimacy and credibility to address issues considered a taboo or issues that can easily be bypassed for fear of antagonising governments. APEVAC also draws its legitimacy from its recognition by the AU, the ACERWC, the RECs and global and national players as a legitimate, credible voice of African organisations and as a movement that can advance the violence prevention agenda in Africa.

With a strong focus on a multi-faceted engagement, experience sharing and cross-learning, the Partnership is keen on tying together efforts of different actors to inform eradication of violence against children. The Partnership provides scope for joint programming and complementarity amongst actors within a specific region or country based on the priorities of a region or country. It strives specially to create synergies with existing partnerships on children in Africa.
