Sponsoring Foundations

The Children and Violence Evaluation Challenge Fund is a pooled funding initiative of the Bernard Van Leer Foundation,  Oak Foundation and UBS Optimus Foundation, organized under the operational platform of the Network of European Foundations (NEF) based in Brussels.

All the sponsoring Foundations have extensively worked over the past years on child protection and early childhood development issues and, based on their experience, they realized the need to build a more solid evidence base in the field of violence prevention and child protection in low- and middle-income countries.



The initiative is currently open to other Foundations who share the same concerns about children and violence in low-income settings. If you are interested to join the Children and Violence Evaluation Challenge Fund, CONTACT US.
