A website to achieve impact and knowledge exchange

The website aims to facilitate the impact strategy of the project by creating a dissemination and knowledge-exchange platform in order to bring together the different stakeholder groups of this project, and to promote cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary learning and the fostering of new collaborations.

The website publishes regular outputs from research, and from engagement and awareness-raising, and knowledge-exchange activities. It includes a dedicated resources page, which publishes resources intended for clergy, theologians and seminarians, and practitioners and researchers in the area of domestic violence. While many of these resources are specific to the project countries, others have wider relevance and can inform international approaches to the study and alleviation of domestic violence within religious communities.

The project seeks to publish in Amharic, Tigrigna and English, although resources are published first in the language that is most accessible to the communities and stakeholders those resources aim primarily to serve.

Project dldl/ድልድል completes one year of activities and receives congratulatory letter from Orthodoxy Cognate Page

On 1 November 2021 project dldl/ድልድል completed its first year of work. The project team celebrated the learning, progress and milestones achieved in 2020-2021 by means of an anniversary virtual meeting that included project partners, co-investigators, staff, advisers and external guests and supporters.

Dr Romina Istratii presented a poster summarising the project’s aims, strategies, operational model and achievements in the first year of the 4-year project. In general, there was agreement on the success of project dldl/ድልድል so far and deep appreciation by the team members, partners and advisers for the knowledge on domestic violence, faith and culture that was achieved, disseminated and translated into societal impact through the work of the project dldl/ድልድል. Despite the war erupting in northern Ethiopia just as the project was ready to start there, and the challenges posed by the global covid-19 pandemic, the team considered that all key milestones had been met and expressed eagerness to scale out and expand the project’s reach into the next phase.

On the occasion of the one year anniversary the project received a congratulatory letter from the Orthodoxy Cognate PAGE on the work of project dldl/ድልድል in the past year.  OCP is a Pan-Orthodox Christian Society established in India dedicated to Christian unity and inter-faith dialogue. The letter expresses appreciation for the work of the project and its dedicated team of colleagues and partners in Ethiopia and Eritrea in the past year.
