Save the Children South Africa

Project Title: Leveraging Sectoral Engagement around INSPIRE to End Violence against Children in South Africa

Proposal Summary: “South Africa is a Pathfinder Country, meaning that it has made a formal pledge to accelerate action to end all forms of violence against children through, amongst other things, seeking alignment with seven strategies of the INSPIRE package. Indeed, the draft POA: VAWC has aligned with the goals of the INSPIRE package. However, the level of general awareness and use of the INSPIRE package and principles is fairly low South Africa, particularly amongst government officials and NGOs – sectors where most of the on-the-ground VAC work is being implemented. Moreover, there is little understanding of the specific roles the three critical sectors (government, NGOs and researchers) can play to support implementation of the strategies. We propose to: • Organize and facilitate 3 sector-specific workshops to raise awareness and engage around the INSPIRE Package with government, civil society and academia. These workshops will identify each sector’s unique contribution to realizing the INSPIRE strategies, assess progress to date and identify opportunities for development and improvement. • Leverage two of the national Dialogue Forum for Evidence-Based Programmes to Prevent VAWC meetings to build capacity among members around the INSPIRE Framework and to develop a multi-sectoral response • Facilitate a child participation workshop to enable children to voice their opinion around VAC and the INSPIRE principles The output for these activities will include sector-level reports on the level of engagement with INSPIRE in South Africa, and integrated report that will be submitted as part of the reporting structure to the Global Partnership as part of South Africa’s role as a Pathfinder Country, an infographic illustrating the principles and components of INSPIRE in an easily accessible way, and a published policy brief or equivalent.”

Centre for Communication and Development (CCD)

Proposal Title: Promoting and Increasing INSPIRE Awareness in Bangladesh

Proposal Summary: “In Bangladesh, children are probably the most neglected members of society and hardly have any voice, even within the home. As a result, they are consistently becoming easy victims of all sorts of violence. A large number of children are deprived of their basic human rights due to unacceptable health, nutrition and education as well as social conditions and protection. In addition, children are exposed to severe forms of physical and mental violence at home, in the work place, in institutions and other public places. The nature and extent of violence against children irrespective of age, sex and class has been increasing day by day. On the whole, our children are not safe despite efforts made by government and non-government organisations in ensuring to end violation against children. INSPIRE: Seven strategies for ending violence against children is an evidence-based technical package to support countries in their efforts to prevent and respond to violence against children aged 0-17 years. The package includes the core document describing what the INSPIRE strategies and interventions are; an implementation handbook that provides details on how to implement the interventions, and a set of indicators to measure the uptake of INSPIRE and its impact on levels of violence against children. The strategies will advance efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goal target 16.2 to end all forms of violence against children. Very recently CCD has conducted a short survey among the 10 Member of Parliament, 20 Officials of Women and Children Welfare Department, 50 local NGOs and 50 local journalists for identifying their existing knowledge on INSPIRE Package. But unfortunately none of them have any knowledge about INSPIRE even they are not aware at all about the INSPIRE initiative. Therefore, under the proposed project CCD would like to conduct media advocacy to the concerned policymakers and high officials of the government including the concerned stakeholders and media personnel so that they can aware of and sensitize about the INSPIRE initiative as well as take necessary action to promote this package in preventing violence against children. In this regards CCD would like translate and publish the INSPIRE Package in Bangle language, produce and publish workshops material of INSPIRE Package in Bangle as well as produce and publishing social media contents of INSPIRE Package in Bangle. At the same time CCD would like to arrange a series of sensitization workshops with the community radio broadcasters, media personnel and concerned stakeholders at the local level so that all the concerned section of the local can be aware about the INSPIRE Package and they can incorporate the seven strategies INSPIRE for ending violence against children. On the basis of each workshop CCD will produce a series of short video documentaries that will share and publish the Facebook Page of Radio Padma which has more then 4.4 millions active followers. At the same time CCD will broadcast a total 17 live radio shows through 17 radio stations to created mass awareness on INSPIRE Package. As a result multimedia campaign and dialogue million of people including all the concerned section both government and non government organizations and stakeholders of the country will be aware of and sensitize about the INSPIRE Package and they could be able to raise their voice in this regards which will be accountable to the concerned department of the government and non government organization to take necessary initiative to incorporate the seven strategies INSPIRE for ending violence against children of the country.”

Proposal Title: Developing Advocates for the Social Service Workforce to Achieve the SDGs and End Violence Against Children

Proposal Summary: “The Global Social Service Workforce Alliance aims to educate and develop advocates for the social service workforce through a media training for key actors within Uganda followed by a press conference and sensitization event with the media. The Alliance will work with the Child Protection Working Group in Uganda to develop a training program and materials that will include a facilitator’s guide, radio PSA, flyers and press release. The materials will be shared nationally, followed by uploading these materials to the Alliance’s website for greater use globally. Alliance Ambassadors, a group of 10 social service workforce champions across 10 countries will further help to share these materials as they lead social service workforce strengthening efforts in their countries and regions. A key component of the training will be on the role of the social service workforce in delivering on ‘R’ within INSPIRE (response services) to meet the SDGs and end violence against children in particular. As Uganda is a Pathfinder Country, it is expected that skills learned in the training and materials developed for interacting with the media will be used at both national and sub-county levels. Following this event, the materials will be shared more widely to develop more advocates for social service workforce strengthening to better protect children, families and communities. The Alliance has extensive experience in developing resources and tools for increasing planning, development and support for the social service workforce, particularly in the area of child protection. In 2017 the Alliance collaborated with Without Violence to develop a Global Advocacy Toolkit with infographics, messages, narratives, fact sheets and tips for communicating to and influencing decision-makers for increased programmatic and political will. The Alliance then proposes to participate in the National Association of Child Care Workers Conference immediately following, in Durban, South Africa, where more than 1500 participants are expected. The Alliance will present as part of a plenary session that include Cornelius Williams, Chief of Child Protection at UNICEF, and that will be live broadcast globally. The Alliance will also conduct a session during the conference to further share some of the materials developed and best practices on advocating for the workforce as well as sponsor an informational booth. The INSPIRE Handbook and Implementation Guide would be among featured materials shared and used as part of these sessions on the need for a stronger social service workforce to deliver response services toward meeting the SDGs and ending violence against children. Through strengthening the abilities of those working within and supportive to the social service workforce to better advocate to government and decision-makers for appropriate planning, development and support, this frontline workforce will be best positioned to meet the needs of vulnerable children and families.”
