Children's Experience of Domestic Violence
During the Ni3 project, 1378 children (9-17 years) from Barbados and Grenada took part in a survey on lived experiences of violence, within their homes and communities. The survey design, implementation and analyses were directed by Professor Daniel Boduszek whose team included: Dr Hazel Da Breo, Dr Ena Trotman Jemmott, Dr Dominic Willmott, Dr Nikki Sherretts and Dr Agata Debowska. This, the first such survey of its kind in the region (Download a copy here) revealed a high prevalence of co-occurring violence (sexual, physical and emotional) with children being the direct targets of victimisation in many instances and also, experiencing secondary trauma through witnessing abuse to others.

Jesse – a serious computer game as an intervention to change
To raise awareness of the impact of domestic violence, to increase empathy and to promote non-violent problem solving skills, the Ni3 project has created Jesse, a computer game as an education intervention that can be used with children and also in professional training. Created by Professor Eunice Ma and Dave Smith, with additional input from Ramy Hammady, trials of Jesse have been conducted in Barbados and Grenada. Dr Boduszek designed the trial procedures and Dr Ena Trotman Jemmott and Dr Hazel Da Breo implemented the trial along with other Ni3 representatives including Sharon-Rose Gittens and Shakiel Stoute who are our featured Ni3 project team members (see below). The trial results will be released mid-January but emerging evidence provides irrefutable evidence of the effectiveness of the game in changing negative attitudes that promote the social acceptance of violence and also in increasing empathy (this is central to developing healthy interpersonal relationships). What will be required of course, is that families, schools, Churches and communities are able to help young people sustain these changes and that they too, become changed themselves
We are pleased to announce the launch Ni3K, a new section of the website dedicated to supporting children and advice about domestic abuse. This section also contains information about None in Three game as well as resources for people who are supporting children who have been exposed to domestic violence.
None in Three is a two-year action-oriented project funded by the EU and implemented in Barbados and Grenada in partnership with the Sweet Water Foundation in Grenada. Supported by national and regional agencies, the project is designed to complement existing domestic violence programmes in the region and also to contribute to change at the international level. Taking its name from the fact that one in three women will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime, the project challenges the idea that violence to women is an inevitability and aims.
Our aims and objectives are:
To increase access to justice and services for especially marginalized women
To engage with men and youth about what needs to be done
To prevent violence through education.
None in Three provides opportunities for everyone to join us in speaking out against domestic violence.
