Channels of Hope: the impact of religious leader's commitments in ending violence against children

World Vision in its systemic approach to child protection strengthens the mechanism of collaboration between formal and non-formal actors to prevent and tackle abuse, neglect, exploitation, and other forms of violence against children.

The “Channels of Hope” for child protection commonly known as COH is a community-based approach that highlights the role and commitment of religious leaders against child protection issues. Following the series of training sessions, they become real actors of change and voice carriers for the cause of child well-being.
