Child Frontiers in Ethiopia

2019 : [ UNICEF ESARO ] : Research and Documentation of Child Protection programs in East and Southern Africa

Child Frontiers is undertaking a multi-country analysis and review for UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) that will provide an overview of the progress made against the implementation of the Global Programs to end child marriage and FGM and the work UNICEF ESARO is doing to address violence against children (VAC), adolescent participation, and country offices’ initiatives to strengthen risk informed programming on VAC in an integrated manner. The review will identify promising programs and interventions; identify lessons learned, gaps and challenges; and make recommendations for the strengthening of efforts. Child Frontiers will produce a series of thought pieces, literature reviews and briefs and a compendium of promising practices related to work being undertaken in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Zambia, Somalia, Uganda, Namibia, Lesotho, Madagascar, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. A key objective is to increase knowledge management through data analysis and documentation of the implementation of the Eastern and Southern Africa Region (ESAR) Child Protection Program.

2019 : [ UNICEF Ethiopia ] : Assessment and strategy VACW response services in refugee and host communities

Child Frontiers is conducting an assessment and strategy to address barriers to accessing Violence against children and women (VACW) response services in refugee and host communities in the Afar, Tigray, Somali, Benishangil Gumuz and Gambella regions in Ethiopia. The objectives of this project are to understand the barriers that girls, boys and women in refugee and host communities face in relation to help-seeking behavior and access to services for violence, child marriage and FGM; and to design an evidence-based strategy to address these barriers, utilizing behavior change communication approaches as appropriate. The Government of Ethiopia and UNICEF are committed to addressing violence against children and women and strengthening access to services by refugees and host communities, as evidenced in the Growth and Transformation Plan II, the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework adopted in 2017 and UNICEF’s Building Self-Reliance Programme.

2015 : [ ECPAT ] : African Study on the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism

Child Frontiers was contracted to assist in a 5 country study (Ghana, Zambia, Ethiopia, South Africa & Kenya) by ECPAT International to analyse qualitative and quantitative information on the sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism in Africa. ECPAT and its African partners conducted research to study this phenomenon, raise awareness and mobilize action from governments, the tourism industry and civil society organizations to stop sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism. Child Frontiers developed research tools including structured interviews, provided technical assistance to ensure the research adhered to the highest ethical standards, synthesized secondary research materials and developed a regional report for the African Reference Group and ECPAT International that was included in the Global Study on the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism.

2014 : [ Save the Children Norway ] : Evaluation of Programs to Strengthen National Child Protection Systems

Child Frontiers reviewed Save the Children Norway's programming to strengthen national child protection systems in Cambodia, Ethiopia, Lao PDR, Mozambique, Nepal, Nicaragua, Uganda and Zimbabwe. The review assessed to what degree programmes have contributed to stronger systems for the protection of children and to what extent and how children have benefited from these systems. The review largely focused on the results achieved and the effectiveness of Save the Children’s programme planning, with the reporting and monitoring processes additionally assessed.  The report can be accessed here: REPORT
