Challenge

Physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children of school age is often perpetrated by people they know and occurs mostly in homes and schools. There are frequent reports in the media of male teachers sexually assaulting their female students. A 2015 survey conducted in Ghana reported that 31% of school girls stated their teachers pressured them for sex, 25% stated they know at least one teacher having an affair with a school girl and 79% stated they were sexually harassed by male classmates.

Solution

Organize an advocacy meeting for 40 stakeholders in the 4 districts to effectively respond to School Related Gender Based Violence. We will organize sensitization meetings with 40 schools on their rights and responsibilities as children in the society. Sensitize 40 communities on School Related Gender Based Violence. Establish Case Managers & Gender Violence Survivors Support Network (GVSSN) and provide support services to victims of school related gender based violence.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide counseling for children; boys and girls in 40 communities to realize their potentials in solving their problems create a confidential and safe platform for school girls and boys survivors to air their feelings, experiences and learn new strategies for taking control over their lives. Also make children, boys and girls perceive schools as safe and enabling environment.
