Webinars in 2019:
In this webinar, we learnt about the findings from a study recently conducted by WV Ireland in Mauritania, and a 2-year implementation in Sierra leone exploring the influence grandmothers have in fragile and urban contexts. Dr Judi Aubel from the Grandmother Project - Change through Culture shared on their innovative approach for exploring families, culture and influence, on a range of issues, especially in collectivist societies, and empowering grandmothers to catalyze change in socio-cultural norms. The urban context presents a range of new challenges for World Vision’s health and nutrition programmes given the complex vulnerability of impoverished urban communities, where the exploitation of children for work is seen as a common way to keep families off the breadline, Grana Selvi, WV Cambodia Technical lead for Health and Nutrition outlined their plans for working with grandmothers in urban slums in Cambodia.
