International Partnerships

Since its founding in 1992, Stop It Now! has worked with local, state, national and international organizations to change the way people think about child sexual abuse and give them actions to take to protect children. Through this comprehensive community based programming we challenged communities to come together to make prevention a priority and to safeguard children’s right to freedom from sexual abuse.  

From our initial pilot projects in the United States to our partnership with our sister organization Stop It Now! UK & Ireland to our consultation with new community collaborations in emerging countries, Stop It Now! is committed to empowering adults and communities to create safe environments that ensure the wellbeing of all children. Learn more about the research and evaluation of Stop It Now! activities.

Currently, we are focusing our efforts on community based action on emerging countries based on our available funding. We are not in a position to support another organization under our umbrella at this time. However, we are in the process of developing our training and technical assistance capacity and specifically looking for funding to enable that work. To that end, we are conducting a survey to see what services are needed to strengthen our case for funding. If you would be interested in a collaboration, please take this Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Programming survey. If you have funding now and would like to collaborate on a particular project, contact us.
