The faith community’s contribution to ending violence against children

World Vision – December 2020

Channels of Hope for Child Protection (CoH CP) is a World Vision attitude and social norm change intervention. It involves mobilizing faith leaders and their spouses to lead their congregations in fostering an environment that advances the protection, support, and well-being of children. Together with Queen Margaret University, World Vision is conducting a five-year (2016-2021), multi-country, longitudinal study on Faith Communities’ Contribution to Ending Violence Against Children. The study explores CoH CP pathways for change and impact at different time points across three sites representing different religious environments: Senegal (predominantly Muslim), Uganda (Christian and Muslim), and Guatemala (Christian).
