In 2015, End Child Poverty joined The Global Coalition to End Child Poverty, an initiative that describes itself as “a network of like-minded organisations deeply concerned with the devastating effects of poverty in childhood on children and societies across the world, and dedicated to raising awareness and supporting global and national action to alleviate it”(visit www.endchildhoodpoverty.org)
An important output for this Coalition is the A World Free from Child Poverty: A Guide to tasks to Achieve the Vision. The guide contains ideas, practical wisdom and steps that governments, state and non-state actors can deploy to achieve a world free of child poverty. By laying emphasis on national level actions, the guide provides a practical vision for individual national pathways to end child poverty.
Coalition members include The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Bank Group, Save the Children, OECD, BRAC,OPHI, Child Fund Alliance), PEP, ATD Fourth World, ODI, Young, Lives, SOS Children’s Villages International, FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, Harvard University), Eurochild, UN Major Group for Children and Youth), Equity for Children, African Child Policy Forum,IDS; and World Vision International.
