Challenge

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines dating violence as an early form of partner violence, occurring primarily in adolescence and early adulthood that results in the second leading cause of death girls aged 10 -19 globally. In Japan, which was ranked 110 out of 144 countries in gender equality, government statistics report that one in four girls under the age of 18 have been the victim of violence by an intimate partner.

Solution

This project will enable TELL to provide educational workshops in schools that focus on healthy relationships, while also providing support to survivors. School programs provide an ideal opportunity to change gender-based attitudes & norms stopping patterns of teen dating violence before they start. Providing support to survivors & tools for dealing with PTSD symptoms is critical in reducing the negative impact of their trauma, to regain control, self-confidence and a bright future.

Long-Term Impact

Every student who undertakes training in healthy sexual and relationship behaviors has the opportunity to be a changemaker of the future and gender equality in Japan. When a survivor is given support to heal, she can become someone who is no longer a victim but someone who thrives again in society.
