This month’s newsletter is chock full of new learning, including three pieces of research that have emerged from the COMPASS program, Creating Opportunities through Mentoring, Parental Involvement, and Safe Spaces, an IRC-led program in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, and Pakistan. For this project, the CPC Learning Network has overseen the research component. The first COMPASS-related article presents findings from a multi-country, cross-sectional study about violence against adolescent girls in conflict-affected settings. The second examines how caregivers’ attutudes towards gender are associated with adolescent girls’ experiences of violence in the DRC, and the third explores how “narratives of fear” shape girls’ participation in community life in the DRC and Ethiopia. You’ll find links to all three below. We’re also sharing new report from our affiliate in Uganda, the AfriChild Centre of Excellence for the Study of the African Child, about community-based child protection in a fishing community as well as articles and reports from partners all over the world.
There are many other resources, vacancies, and opportunities listed below as well. As always, we enjoy hearing about and sharing the work you are doing. Please send any resources, events, or job postings you would like for us to share in our next update to email@example.com.
