Community of Practice

The members of the INSPIRE Community of Practice are individual representatives actively implementing or interested in implementing INSPIRE-related programs to end violence against children from the following constituencies: Academia, Bi- and Multi-lateral agencies, Consortia/Partnerships, CSOs/NGOs, Government bodies and Philanthropic Foundations. Due to overwhelming interest in the membership, there is no size limit.

The membership in the Community of Practice allow individuals to stay up to date on latest implementation efforts, access trainings and virtual learning opportunities related to implementation, share their own progress, connect and collaborate with peers, stay up to date on funding opportunities, attend annual INSPIRE and serve as local champions for effective implementation.  More specifically, agencies that join the Community of Practice commit to:

  • advocate for the outcomes outlined in the Collective Action Framework
  • form, lead on and serve in various informal issue-area sub-groups that emerge organically within the group
  • share INSPIRE package, relevant updates and opportunities for engagement with relevant stakeholders and her/his own professional contacts
  • integrate INSPIRE strategies, approaches, programs and practices into: a) Requests for proposals (where the member is a funding organization) and funding requests (where the member is a recipient organization); and b) Relevant programming mechanisms, such as country and regional strategy documents
  • report back to the IWG each year on organizational commitments as needed, with details about targeted countries and the activities supported
  • become an ambassador to promote community engagement and support for INSPIRE implementation
  • support new evidence generation, impact evaluation and advocacy efforts as needed.
