We have partnered with the Ngogwe community for over 10 years; and are now seeing the long-term impact our work is having on the children of Ngogwe.

Child protection is a core focus of our work with the Ngogwe community, as we work together to tackle child abuse, neglect and child marriage. In 2018, through our Channels of Hope for Gender and Child Protection programme, over 60 church congregations in Ngogwe have been sensitized by faith leaders on issues of gender-based violence and child protection. Channels of Hope teams have also facilitated community outreach to household clusters to counsel them on the dangers of domestic violence and to counsel broken families.

We’re working with the people of Ngogwe to build a community where children thrive.

We have supported the Ngogwe community to further develop their education services by; establishing 10 community-based literacy centres in the community which are being supported by 50 local literacy volunteers; constructing a classroom block at a primary school; and training 60 teachers to create contextualised learning materials for their children.

We facilitated training with 600 farmers who are now applying improved farming techniques, which increases their productivity and livelihoods. 

We will continue our partnership with the Ngogwe community until 2023, continuing to build their knowledge, skills and resilience through sustainable projects, ensuring they will be equipped to identify and respond to needs as they arise.
teachers have been trained to recognise signs of abuse and violence and to follow the appropriate reporting processes.
