Zanzibar Joint Programme

On 26th August 2017 the Government of Zanzibar launched a National Plan of Action to End Violence Against Women and Children in Zanzibar 2017-2022.

The national plan of action was developed following an extensive programme of national consultation and was collaboratively prepared by a range of government ministries, agencies, non-governmental organisations and development partners. In particular, the United Nations provided key technical and financial support in the development of the national plan of action.

The plan outlines the social and ecological framework in which violence occurs in Zanzibar and adopts a theory of change approach in identifying the causes of violence and the multiple evidence-based interventions needed to effectively address violence against women and children. It provides an overall vision and is organised around three key outcomes areas on enabling environment, prevention and response and support services. Under each outcome area the plan outlines targeted results and the evidenced based and costed interventions required to comprehensively address violence against women and children. The United Nations Joint Programme for Ending Violence Against Women and Children in Zanzibar seeks to support the effective operationalization of the national plan of action through coordinated support for identified key priority interventions under each outcome area of the plan.

Under the United Nations Joint Programme for Ending Violence Against Women and Children in Zanzibar selected priority interventions under each of the three outcome areas identified in the national plan of action will be supported. In targeting key interventions under each outcome of the national plan of action the UN Joint Programme will seek to support the effective implementation of the national plan in achieving its vision to, by 2022, establish and operationalize a national system where government, civil society, communities, families, men, women and children are empowered to prevent and respond to violence against women and children.

The UN Joint Programme on Violence Against Women and Children’s theory of change state that: if there is an enhanced enabling environment for the protection and empowerment of women and children (outcome 1); and if there is enhanced access to prevention programmes and services (outcome 2); and if an integrated system for response and support services is established in Zanzibar (outcome 3); then there will be a national system established and made operational that prevents and respond to violence against women and children and ensures that women and children throughout Zanzibar enjoy their rights to an environment free from all forms of violence. 

Baseline Background
In 2009, the Government of Zanzibar conducted the Zanzibar Violence against Children Study (VAC Study). The VAC Study was the first ever household survey on violence against children in Zanzibar and revealed the scale of sexual, physical and emotional violence against girls and boys under the age of 18 years. The VAC Study reported that over 6 per cent of girls (over 1 in 20 females) and 9 per cent of boys (almost 1 in 10 males) who were surveyed reported experiencing at least one incident of sexual violence before the age of 18. The study also revealed that there is significant stigma associated with reporting sexual violence against children. Less than half of the girls and boys who experienced sexual violence in childhood told someone about it. In addition to low reporting, the number of children experiencing sexual violence who seek services is low and where services are sought they are not always available. Only 1 in 10 children who experienced childhood sexual violence received services for their experiences. 99 per cent of community members in Zanzibar report that they are concerned about violence against children and 6 out of 10 reports that violence against children is common in their communities. However, 7 out of 10 community members report that cases of violence against children are dealt with privately rather than reported to official authorities. Fear of retribution and cultural practices that perceive violence as a private family matter are cited as the main reasons for not reporting violence against children.

Physical violence is experienced by the majority of children in Zanzibar. 71 per cent of boys and 62 per cent of girls experience physical abuse before turning 18 years. The most frequent reported perpetrators of physical violence against children were relatives and teachers. 4 out of 10 community members report that children are often physically punished by their parents and 1 in 3 reports that it is necessary to physically punish children in order to raise them well. 6 out of 10 community members report that children are often physically punished by their teachers and 1 in 2 reports that it is necessary to physically punish children to ensure that they are well education. About 1 in 7 girls and 1 in 5 boys report experiencing emotional violence before the age of 18. Being called bad names was the most frequent form of abuse.

There is also strong evidence available that shows that exposure to violence has serious health, development and economic consequences. Exposure to violence can impair brain development and, increases the risks of injury and the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Experiences of physical, sexual and emotional violence have a direct link with increased mental health problems; delayed development; poor school performance and dropout; early pregnancy; reproductive health problems; and communicable and non-communicable diseases.

Moreover, there is limited research data on the magnitude, trends, and dynamics of trafficking in persons (TIP) in Zanzibar. This study will provide the magnitude and dynamics of TIP in the country based on first-hand data This information is important for the IOM’s continuous support activities for the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Committee and Secretariat (ATIP), the Zanzibari representative to the Committee, and towards preventing and responding to violence against women and children in Zanzibar.
