Namibia: Post-VACS Data-to-Action Activities  

In 2022, Project Hope and LifeLine/ChildLine Namibia agreed to work together to amplify specific aspects of the country’s response to Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS) results.

The Namibian Government developed a scope of work referencing key takeaways and recommendations from a landscape analysis and country briefs. Lifeline / Childline (LLCL) and Project Hope Namibia (PHN) are respectively focused on two of the government’s key priorities in relation to ending violence against children: strengthening parenting and caregiver programming and making schools safer.


  • Training of social workers and parents through a pilot program to reinforce child protection networks
  • Training of trainer materials ready for programs across the country wanting to adopt the national parenting curriculum
  • Endline data collection among learners and parents in 26 schools and a case study competition among the schools featuring specific violence prevention programs they have tried
  • Memorandum of Understanding signed to enable the piloting of an integrated electronic case management system for youth survivors of violence, care providers and relevant stakeholders.
