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 focusing on two of the Government of Namibia’s key priorities in relation to ending violence against children: strengthening parenting and caregiver programming and making schools safer. LLCL’s goal is to consolidate a National Parenting Program in collaboration with relevant ministries and other stakeholders. PHN will be focused on responding to and preventing violence in school settings by designing interventions and capacity strengthening interventions for school personnel.
