The JLI is supporting the Consortium on Nurturing Values and Spirituality in Early Childhood for the Prevention of Violence as a knowledge partner. Learning from your program could help influence other organizations to integrate values and spirituality into their work. JLI will synthesize the evidence to help suggest further research and document prioritized case studies.
We are looking for practices and project interventions targeting children in the early years from 0 to 8 and including children with disabilities, boys & girls, children living in fragile environments; The practices aim to showcase how nurturing spirituality is integrated in early childhood interventions and how this factor can contribute to spiritual development, improved childhood outcomes and to preventing and decreasing violence against children in the early years. Interventions can also showcase how faith leaders and faith communities have mobilized to challenge cultural and social norms condoning violence in the early years, thus contributing to overall violence reduction.

About The Consortium on Nurturing Values and Spirituality in Early Childhood for the Prevention of Violence
The Consortium on Nurturing Values and Spirituality in Early Childhood for the Prevention of Violence shares good practices and develops evidence-based and innovative approaches to nurture spiritual development in the early years. Launched in 2018, it brings together and fosters collaboration among civil society and faith-based organizations, religious communities, multilateral organizations, academia and individual experts.
In 2019, the Consortium conducted five roundtable discussions and mappings to identify good practices in Sri Lanka, India, Lebanon, Kenya and Brazil. The Consortium is now refining the learning from this into a toolkit on the spiritual development of children in the early years and your experience is invaluable.
