October 16-18, the Global Partners Forum on Children on the Move will be held in Rome, Italy. The Global Partners Forum provides a platform to bring together a diverse group of faith-based organisations. Partners will reflect on their respective contributions to end violence against children as it relates to children on the move (children or young people and their families who are forcibly displaced internally or refugees).
