Environment Africa is implementing a “Scaling up Child Protection in Hwange District (SUCPH) project’ from May 2019 to August 2020. The main aim of the project is that critical attitude towards child marriage influences action and decision making of parents and children in the project region of Hwange district by end of August 2020. The project has two components i.e. the research component and the intervention component. The project is targeting 23 wards i.e. (Victoria Falls Urban ward 1-11, Hwange Urban wards 1,6,7 and 12), Rural wards – Chikandakubi, Nemananga, Kachecheti, Chidobe, Matetsi, Simangani, Mabale and Change) in Hwange district for the research component and 15 wards are targeted for specific upscaling child protection interventions of the proposed project i.e. 4 rural wards (Chikandakubi, Nemananga, Kachecheti, Chidobe) and 11 urban wards (Victoria Falls ward 1-11 i.e. Mkhosana, Chinotimba suburbs and the low density suburb).
The project receives funding from Kindernothilfe e.V. (KNH), a German based Child Rights Organisation and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). In order to have an independent opinion on the project progress at outcome and output levels, the project will engage an external consultant to conduct an End of Project -Knowledge, Attitude and Practices (KAP) study. The study will assess progress of the project by assessing the actual development of the indicator data at outcomes and outputs level. Specifically, it will establish the change in proportion of the target communities that accept/tolerate child marriage from baseline, determine the change in level of knowledge, attitudes, and perception of traditional leaders, community members, local authorities, youths, women and children towards child marriages and assess the change in level of capacity of Child Protection Committees (CPCs) to roll out child protection programmes within communities
