Engaging faith leaders to prevent and address harmful practices against children

World Vision is mobilising the support of faith leaders of both Muslim and Christian faiths to advocate for change, as part of its approach to promote a protective environment for children. We are equipping faith leaders with communication skills, particularly on approaching sensitive topics that are often considered taboo or of which people are shy to speak (including female genital mutilation - FGM, early marriage, domestic abuse and menstrual health).

Nearly two months of heavy rains and flooding experienced across Sudan has killed at least 100 people, displaced thousands, including vulnerable children and left a trail of devastation. The Government estimated that more than 650,000 people have been affected, leading it to declare a 90-day state of emergency.

Sustaining COVID-19 behaviour change messages and bridging the gap between knowledge and practice

The biggest concern with COVID-19

World Vision is actively represented in two of Sudan's eight COVID-19 response pillars outlined in the country's preparedness and response plan, which are namely Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE), and Infection Prevention and Control (IPC). Martin Mutisya, our WASH Programme Manager based in the capital Khartoum, has been participating in response activities since mid-March. On our latest blog, he shares reflections from the ground, noting that the biggest challenge is not so much a lack of knowledge, but changing attitudes and behaviours.

Sudan

As a child-focused organisation, our goal is to see children reach their full potential. We don’t just want children to survive, we want them to thrive! We began working in Sudan in 1983, our programmes were initially operational until 1988. In June 2004, we resumed operations, in response to the Darfur Crisis.

Today, our teams of dedicated development and humanitarian professionals work tirelessly to contribute to the improved well-being of boys and girls through multi-sectoral and community-based programmes across four states: South Darfur, Blue Nile, East Darfur and South Kordofan. Our headquarters are in Khartoum.

We remain committed to our vision of life in all its fullness for all children. By 2020, we hope to have positively affected 2.5 million boys and girls in Sudan.
