In second three months within of the project "Education against violence toward girls", the activists of Center for Girls held 4 workshops in Nis, with 55 girls in 1 elementary school. This is the first time that we are done any workshop in this school. Girls were open, shared experiences and actively participated in the workshop. They liked this workshops because we openly spoke and they had support to say something on this topic. They often do not have the opportunity to talk about it with anyone because is taboo topic in our community.


It is especially important to mention that they didn't had workshops like this before, to sat in the circle, to discuss and where everyone has the opportunity to say their opinion.

 

From the evaluation of the girls who passed the workshop you can see what they learned and what they liked:



  • I liked it because I learned that I need to scream when I'm in danger. More about violence against women. How can I defend myself when somebody attacks me.

 

  • Today, I learned that touching intimate parts of the body without permission is actually sexual sesual harasment, and that there is economic violence. I liked it, it was interesting.

 

  •  We learned how to defend ourselves in case of attempted rape. I loved it.

 

  • I learned that a rapist can even be someone who is very close to us. Rape it happens indoors, not in forests. It happens in closed spaces like house, apartment, cars. I am very satisfied with this workshop.

 

  • To recognize a situation that would endanger me in any way and how to save myself from that.


After or during workshops the girls expressed their wish that they would like to learn some movements of self-defense in order to be able to defend themselves and in the event that they are attacked.

Workshops were done at the elementary school ‘’Ivan Goran Kovacic’’. The workshops were led by Tatjana Nikolic and Marija Virijevic. Photographed by Silvija Mihajlovic.

In first three months within of the project "Education against violence against girls", the activists of Center for Girls conducted 4 workshops in Nis, with 57 girls in 3 high schools. The girls actively participated in the workshops. They liked the concept of the workshop as well as the topic we were dealing with.

 

The girls said that it was of great importance that they could talk to the peer educators who led the workshop, that they learned a lot and that workshops should be done more often. It is especially important to them that they sat in the circle and that they could say their opinion. From the evaluation of the girls who passed the workshop you can see what they learned and what they liked:

 

  • I like the way in which information about the types of violence is transmitted. As well as that alcoholism is not the cause of violence.

  • I like that there is one such organization in which women can be informed about all things related to violence of any kind.

  • I learned that no one has the right to commit violence and that everyone has the right to live safely.

  • I like this workshop because of what I learned about what is actually violence and how it begins.

  • I liked that we were listened each other and sharing our thoughts.The biggest impression left on me the wheel of violence.

  • I very much like the theme of the workshop (which is very present in the society in general), and is being little talked about that.

  • I liked that we sat in the circle and that circle represents trust.

  • I liked the stories about the issues that we dealt with because they also contain a little less known information.

  • I liked that we talked about some types of violence that are not often talked about, such as economic violence.

 

Workshops were done at the High School "Svetozar Markovic", Trade School and Law-Business School. The workshops were led by Marta Stanojevic, Anja Veselinovic and Marija Virijevic.
