who we are

The Prevention Collaborative is a group of longtime practitioners and researchers who came together to better connect local and global knowledge to prevent violence against women and their children. We wanted to create a new type of organisation—one that is values driven, virtual, and agile—where individuals could pursue their passion and bring their whole selves to work, unconstrained by the institutional rules that regulate most organisations.

WHAT UNITES US IS OUR COMMITMENT TO SOCIAL JUSTICE AND MAKING THE WORLD SAFER AND MORE EMPOWERING FOR WOMEN AND FOR THE NEXT GENERATION.

The Collaborative’s current focus is on reducing violence against women and their children, with an emphasis on preventing intimate partner violence and children experiencing harsh discipline in the home. As our capacity as an organisation grows, we will expand our work to include other types of violence.

Our mission

The Prevention Collaborative strengthens the capacity of key actors to design, deliver, and advocate for cutting-edge prevention programmes informed by research-based evidence, practice-based knowledge, and feminist principles.

We believe that patriarchy, rigid gender norms, and unequal power between individuals are central to understanding violence against women and their children.

We embrace intersectional feminism and recognise that women and gender diverse individuals often face multiple forms of oppression, making them especially vulnerable to violence and abuse.

OUR PRINCIPLES

01

We aim to serve the wider feminist and anti-violence community.

02

We strive to remain agile, responsive, and open.

03

We believe that power should be shared and that success is a collective effort.

04

We are generous in spirit and respectful as collaborators and co-learners.

05

We are vibrant and self-reflective, infusing our work with creativity and optimism.

OUR TEAM

With the international staff on the Prevention Collaborative’s core team, we combine breadth and depth of experience.
