Ending Violence Lab
The Ending Violence Lab supports systematic grassroots’ implementation of collaborative advocacy to prevent violence against children. For example, the Lab involves members of the Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC) in Chile, Nepal, Serbia, and Tanzania.
Through interfaith efforts, the GNRC members in these countries advocate for ending child marriage, preventing online child sexual abuse and exploitation, and supporting meaningful participation of children in policymaking to protect their rights and well-being.
Based on the added value of using an interfaith approach to advocacy for children’s rights and well-being, the Ending Violence Lab was created to:
Influence local efforts to end violence against children by applying an interfaith approach to advocacy linking the shared values of the world’s major religions and the UNCRC principles.
Increase collaborative local advocacy for children’s rights and emphasize the role of faith communities to prevent violence against children.
Strengthen interfaith and intercultural collaboration between children and adults.
