Summary

Children and youth exposed to family violence grow believing that violence is ok and it is a means of solving problems. Currently, we are working on a pilot project with a pre primary and primary schools to teach pupils to understand violence as a negative way of addressing issues. The project will now be expanded to ten other schools to mentor pupils of age ten and below who are exposed to family violence.

Challenge

Domestic violence in Busoga region where Jinja is a part of, is the highest in Uganda estimated at 74% according to the recent survey by the Uganda national Bureau of standards. Children experiencing domestic violence are at risk of being hurt intentionally or unintentionally, developing attachment disorders and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The project will directly and indirectly reach over 10,000 pupils and 100,000 pupils of age 3-10 years old in Jinja District.

Solution

The program will provide social support through pupil relationship and will also provide peer mentoring to the pupils.

Long-Term Impact

The project will mentor 1000 pupils thereby increasing their self confidence and developing their leadership skills. The pupils will also reduce aggressive behavior and attitudes.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
