Zindagii Shoista: Living with dignity – Impact after 30 months

Evaluation of Zindagii Shoista, an intervention to prevent violence against women in Tajikistan

This report outlines the medium-term impacts of Zindagii Shoista (Living with Dignity), a project aimed at preventing violence against women and girls in Tajikistan.

It does so by determining levels of violence and measuring socioeconomic and emotional wellbeing indicators 15 months after the project ended – 30 months after its commencement.

At the endline of the intervention, levels of violence against women and girls had dropped by 50%, and relationship and gender equality indicators had improved.

Significant positive changes were seen for all socioeconomic status indicators as well as significant positive changes for all health measures, including depression scale and suicidality.
