Our learning community is comprised of practitioners and activists with skills in VAW prevention, research, programme design and implementation, monitoring and evaluation and advocacy who can facilitate learning, dialogue and capacity building.
Knowledge around preventing violence against women is constantly evolving and we all need ways to keep up-to-date. Our learning Community is built upon the belief that no one is an expert in everything and we are all learning and have something to share from our experience. As a community, we share a commitment to highlighting the importance of both research and practice-based learning to inform effective programming for women and children.
We have a number of working groups and host regular webinars to offer members opportunities to share their expertise with the community and learn from each other. Topics include presentations of new study findings and learning modules on key topics from the basics of prevention, including how to address common implementation and monitoring challenges. We also collect Prevention Stories through interviews with activists and practitioners to learn from their practical experiences and share programme insights.
