JLI SGBV hub launch at SVRI

Faith plays a powerful influence on the lives of communities including survivors. Spiritual healing or well-being is a key aspect of the overall wellbeing of survivors as expressed by them so there is a real need to explore ways in which the global community explores, understands and works with faith in SGBV. Efforts are needed to promote partnerships between faith groups and other key stakeholders including researchers to begin to explore the role of faith in SGBV prevention and response.

Event hosted by the Joint Learning Initiative Sexual and Gender based Violence hub (JLI SGBV) at the 2017 Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) Forum

As a process of bridging the gap between faith groups and other key stakeholders this session seeks to highlight the following: Share and discuss findings from Tearfund research on the role of faith in prevention and response to SGBV; Present an overview of evidence for faith groups’ activity and contribution to SGBV prevention and care, based on JLI SGBV Scoping Study; Understand the faith language, expressions and the real meaning of the same; Explore the mechanisms and approaches for developing good practice standards for faith response to SGBV; Identify key learning and tools to work with faith communities, and what additional tools are needed; and Launch the JLI SGBV Learning Hub.
