The June 2018 Community of Practice discussion focused on Operations research in Ghana and Kenya on the effectiveness of World Vision’s Channels of Hope methodology in tackling the sensitive topic of reproductive health and family planning. Project Hypothesis: Channels of Hope would increase population knowledge on contraceptive methods, contraceptive demand and contraceptive use.
What is Channels of Hope? Channels of Hope is an interactive, facilitated process to create a safe space for faith leaders and faith communities to learn, share and debate. It reaches to the root causes and deepest convictions that impact attitudes, norms, values and practices toward the most vulnerable. The process is grounded in guiding principles from participants’ holy scriptures. Channels of Hope is designed to move the heart, inform the mind and motivate a sustained and effective response to significant issues. Channels of Hope does not proselytise or change people’s doctrine, but equips faith leaders to apply their sacred texts to key social issues and encourage other faith leaders and faith communities to do the same.
