In March 2017, Word Vision launched the global campaign It takes a world to end violence against children to raise awareness, improve accountability for commitments and inspire urgent action related to ending violence against children. Given the multi-sectoral nature of the issue, partnerships are a key driver for the campaign – working with groups like civil society, faith groups, children and adolescents, government, the private sector and the United Nations (UN), maximise impact and can ensure the overall sustainability of the campaign.
To learn more about the role that partnerships played in national It takes a world campaigns, World Vision conducted semi-structured interviews with focal points from World Vision Armenia, Eswatini and Lesotho and in-country campaign partners from July to August 2018. The interviews focused on how the foundations for partnering were laid and how these approaches are contributing towards the campaign goals. Based on the findings, World Vision identified five recommendations based on emerging good practice, three areas for strengthening and one new approach to explore for collaborative, multi-stakeholder national-level campaigns
