Through training, mentoring, and advisory services, we equip actors to shift norms, empower individuals, mobilise communities, and transform the social and structural factors that underpin violence.
Our Learning Lab offers a variety of self-paced and facilitated courses, designed for those working in the field of violence against women (VAW) prevention. Rooted in the latest evidence and designed for adult learners, our courses focus on connecting learners/participants with their colleagues around the world. A key aspect of our courses is to enable reflection and learning from experience. We believe that practical knowledge and skills contribute to improved programming. Courses are designed with practitioner input and feedback ensuring that they are focused on their needs. This means that our courses are constantly evolving to stay up to date on the latest in effective violence prevention.
“I REALLY LEARNED A LOT, ESPECIALLY IN TERMS OF CONTENT DELIVERY, HOW I CAN MAKE MY PROGRAMMING BETTER AND A BIG PART OF IT WAS THROUGH THE CHAT AND GETTING IDEAS FROM DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND WORKING OUT HOW TO TRANSLATE THAT TO MY TEAMS.”

WE OFFER ACTION-ORIENTED LEARNING EXPERIENCES
TO EQUIP YOU FOR EFFECTIVE VIOLENCE PREVENTION.
The Cluster Programme aims to strengthen organisations’ capacoty to develop and implement effective VAW and/or VAC prevention programmes in low resource environments in a collaborative learning setting. The programme brings together 4 to 6 organisations with similar interests over a six month period.
We engage with partners through strategic advisory services that contribute to our mission.
We typically engage in longer term relationships that focus on capacity strengthening for
VAW prevention. However, we also engage in shorter assignments where we feel we can add
specific value to an organisation’s work on prevention.
“THE ENTIRE [PARTNERSHIP] PROCESS REMAINED VERY EFFECTIVE AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO ENGAGING MORE IN THE FUTURE WITH THE PREVENTION COLLABORATIVE.”
UN WOMEN BANGLADESH
This partnership with Jhipego Nigeria focused on strengthening the capacity of their VAW prevention work. We worked with them to help strengthen their partners’ understanding and application of essential concepts in VAW prevention. We provided support for their co-design process which will lead to an evidence-based approach to VAW prevention that will reach thousands of people in two states of Nigeria.
Since 2019, we have worked in partnership with UN Women Asia Pacific to strengthen the capacity of their staff and partners on VAW prevention. This has included collaborative work on prevention programme design and evaluation, including integrating behaviour change and social norms change approaches. We also co-developed a regional UN Women VAW prevention strategy as well as a VAW prevention strategy for UN Women India. We piloted a virtual workshop series to roll out the RESPECT implementation package in Bangladesh, India and Nepal and also delivered a series of interactive webinars and workshops for UN Women staff and partners in the region on different prevention approaches. We also developed evidence and practice briefs on different prevention approaches.
