The report presents a pilot programme that was delivered by Project dldl/ድልድል with the support of EOTC DICAC to build the preparedness of Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo clergy in Debre Birhan, Amhara region, to respond to domestic violence in their communities. The intervention was designed on the basis of Dr Romina Istratii’s previous long-term anthropological research on conjugal violence in northern Ethiopia. The report describes how the programme was set up and the timeline of its delivery and evaluation, the training content of the workshops and the workshop format. It also presents the delivery team’s evaluation of learnings, followed by the participants’ own feedback collected after the workshops and in follow-up ‘refresher’ trainings and outlines directions for continuing and scaling out the programme and its potential impact in the future.
