What does the JLI EVAC Hub do?

Every year, at least one billion children experience violence—that’s half of the world’s children. The JLI Ending Violence Against Children (EVAC) Learning Hub seeks to increase the understanding of better practices for faith engagement in ending violence against children.

The EVAC Hub provides a unique platform for a global network of academics, policymakers, and practitioners that are growing the knowledge and evidence-base of effective faith-based partnerships to prevent and end violence against children.

  • Research: the EVAC Hub regularly produces original resources, such as the comprehensive 2019 Scoping Study on faith involvement in preventing, eliminating and perpetuating violence against children.
  • Resources: the EVAC Hub also gathers and shares resources from other EVAC Hub Members in the resource library.
  • Events: the EVAC Hub hosts events, such as the Seen But Not Heard 2020 web events on faith actors and child participation.
