Connect with respect: Preventing gender-based violence in schools

Overview

Connect with respect: Preventing gender-based violence in schools. Classroom programme for students in early secondary school (ages 11-14).

Students learn best in schools that provide safety and social support. However, some young people experience violence and harassment in, around, and on the way to school. This includes gender-based violence, which can take many different forms.

Teachers play an important role in preventing the expression of gender-based violence in the school setting.

This tool has been created to help teachers, school principals and the broader education provide positive role models, empower children and youth to have healthy and respectful relationships, and deliver a violence prevention programme within their curriculum in Asia and the Pacific.
