We are a coalition of and for the Global South. We synthesize knowledge, convene practitioners, and advocate to prevent violence against children in schools.

A majority of children go to school in the Global South. Therefore, a significant proportion of policy ideas and practical interventions must be informed by those with on the ground experience. We believe that when we elevate and amplify voices of practitioners in the Global South, we are more likely to arrive at solutions that are sustainable and work better for all.

The problem we’re addressing.

Unhappy Asian boy standing with his back against an exterior wall and looking up into the air. Coalition for Good Schools.

Over 1 billion children worldwide experience violence, a significant proportion of that in schools.

From corporal punishment and sexual violence to bullying by peers, this problem affects every aspect of a child’s life: development, learning and physical health. The long-term repercussions are costly to individuals and the communities and societies in which they live.
