Challenge

Child sexual, physical abuse and neglect are rampant. Children do not know what their rights are and where to report. 2000 Children from 20 schools in 7 communities will be given information on child rights and abuse and where to report abuses. Teachers will also benefit because their capacity to help their pupils is hindered by their lack of knowledge on the matter, the ways in which their own actions may be abusive, how to respond to an abused child, and where to report.

Solution

Contact Director of Education for letters of support and head teachers of schools to discuss purpose of the workshops and set up dates on which workshops will be held. Conduct workshops, evaluate and report on the workshops

Long-Term Impact

2000 direct beneficiaries and indirect beneficiaries will have greater knowledge on child rights and abuse and where to access help. This will promote reporting and appropriate action when abuse occurs.
