1. About ICS
Our goal is for every child to grow up in a safe and nurturing
environment so that they can reach their full potential. A goal we aim
to achieve by working with parents and caregivers, strengthening
families and communities, strengthening and influencing governments,
civil society, and the private sector towards better policies and
practices to fulfil children’s rights.

2. Background and context
Children in education settings in Kenya and Tanzania experience and
witness various forms of violence. Corporal punishment is the most
widely reported form of violence against children (VAC) in education
settings. Physical violence, as well as sexual violence, abuse, and
harassment, are also prevalent in school settings across the two
countries. At the psychological and emotional level, one of the most
common forms of violence experienced by school children is bullying and
insults from teachers and support staff. While some violence is
unexpected and isolated, most violent acts against children are carried
out by people they know and should be able to trust, such as parents,
teachers, and schoolmates. Since 2012, ICS SP has worked towards making
primary schools safe, supportive, and non-violent. We have implemented
multi-level INSPIRE strategies to address violence in and around
schools. Continuous learning and improvement is part of our values. We
have over the years collected data that has helped refine the various
intervention strategies. The data collected also suggest that the
approaches are working to address VAC. However, there is a need to
continuously have valid and credible evidence to help focus investments
and scale up interventions that demonstrate positive effects. In
particular, we aim to study the effects of the whole school approach
intervention to understand better whether the approach has had a
positive effect in preventing and reducing incidences of violence in and
around schools and improving educational outcomes. The whole school
approach has been implemented in over 40 primary schools in Kenya and
Tanzania and for ICS to collect data effectively research tools need to
be translated into the local language of the communities where we are
implementing our interventions.**
