What is the 19 Days Campaign?


The 19 Days Campaign
is a WWSF initiative launched in 2011 by the Children-Youth Section and sponsored by the Women's World Summit Foundation - WWSF and other partners.

As a multi-issue coalition of diverse partners using the 19 Days Campaign as an organizing strategy in the fight against at least one of the 19 abuse/violence issues presented in the list of campaign themes, you help create a world fit for children by:

  •  Raising public awareness of the multi-faceted problem of abuse and violence
  •  Mobilizing agents for change, organizations, institutions and grassroots faith-based groups
  •  Educating for better prevention measures
  •  Strengthening local, national and international initiatives
  •  Establishing collaboration with other campaign partners
  •  Creating support at the national, regional and international level
  •  Linking prevention with the Convention on the rights of the child and the UN Study on violence against children 
  •  Lobbying governments to implement UN Study recommendations and in particular "prioritize prevention"
  •  Lobbying governments to increase investment for prevention of violence against children and youth, in particular national civil society initiatives and Child Rights organizations and advocates.
