Faith inspired action to end GBV This report provides lessons learnt from the Islamic Relief Netherlands-funded project, “Combating Gender-Based Violence of Women and Girls”. Carried out in the Dekasuftu Woreda of Liben Zone within the Somali regional state of Ethiopia from February 2016 to March 2017, it is planned to continue the project in 2018, in partnership with Islamic Relief UK. This document highlights the key aims, findings, challenges and results of the project, and also discusses the main lessons for future projects we conduct. In sharing our findings, this report will benefit fellow organisations and stakeholders by informing them of the issues we faced and lessons that we learnt. It also intends to increase the scale and scope of our work on GBV projects, generate learning and sharing of information, and promote evidence-based programming.
