Challenge

The Dominican Republic is within the top five countries in Latin America that exhibit a higher incidence of violence. The Dominican Republic is in the first places in feminicide rates in Latin America (gender violence increased by 42% in 2018). Also, school violence is a serious problem in the country (one in four students has suffered violence).

Solution

The project contribute to the knowledge and dissemination of initiatives and actions that are identified as good practices for the construction of a culture of peace in Dominican Republic communities through communication and education resources, as well as participatory processes that promote education in values and attitudes, dialogue and conflict resolution. It proposes to prioritize prevention, especially in schools, in order to reduce violence and erradicate inequality between men and women

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate at least 4,000 young people and adults to achieve behavioral changes that will resolve conflicts peacefully, prevent violence and contribute to creating communities of peace in the Dominican Republic. It is about developing courses, seminars, conferences oriented to the creation of a Culture of Peace, as well as production of didactic materials.
