The Heroes Foundation’s partnership with the Spotlight Initiative seeks to empower children and youth to demand lives free from violence and ensure that they have information and skills to self-protect and positively influence their peers and communities.
ABOUT THE SPOTLIGHT INITIATIVE
The Spotlight Initiative is a global initiative of the United Nations which has received generous support from the European Union. Its aim is to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls.
The Spotlight Initiative is responding to all forms of violence against women and girls, with a particular focus on domestic and family violence, sexual and gender-based violence and harmful practices, femicide, trafficking in human beings and sexual and economic (labour) exploitation.
As a demonstration fund for action on the Sustainable Development Goals, we are demonstrating that a significant, concerted and comprehensive investment in gender equality and ending violence can make a transformative difference in the lives of women and girls.
