From May 5-8, IICRD, World Vision International and World Vision East Africa Regional Office (WV EARO) hosted 14 WV child protection practitioners from Ethiopia, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda. The workshop marks the beginning of a 2 year partnership between IICRD and WV (with support from WV Australia) to test a newly developed global CP Theory of Change in the East African context. The aim on the ToC is to strengthen CP systems through formal and non-formal CP mechanisms. Workshop participants learned about the CP ToC and planned for a first phase baseline data collection process that will be implemented in 8 WV communities in the 4 countries. Participants were also trained in the use of child centred M&E tools drawing from IICRD's Child Centred Accountability Protection Evaluation (CAPE) suite of PAR tools that will comprise a core part of the multi-method approach. IICRD team members Michele and Philip Cook will be joined by Columbia University Professor Mike Wessells as technical leads for this partnership.
