Prevent violence in schools focuses on enabling and supporting learners to take action to prevent violence in their own schools. It includes a workshop programme for learners followed up with school-based mentoring support.
The programme is part of a wider initiative, Safer South Africa for Women and children, launched in 2012 by Save the Children South Africa, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in partnership with the Department of Basic Education and funded by DfiD. Prevent violence in schools forms part of the safety and protection priority area of the DBE’s Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) Programme
Programme materials include two publications:
• Prevent violence in schools. Learners taking action. Learner book
• Prevent violence in schools. Learners taking action. Facilitator and mentor guide
