Educating teenage Girls and Boys in schools to know about healthy relationships, building their knowledge and advance their awareness on gender-based violence, its consequences and unacceptability, has generated attention as a feasible approach to

combat violence against women and girls. The underlying notion is – “to catch them when they are young” a road map towards ending violence against women and girls.


THE APPROACH. The intervention will involve “formation of Gender Clubs” in selected junior Secondary Schools and working with Girls’ and Boys’ by introducing a specialised curriculum that focus on providing opportunities through various learning areas. This covers but not limited to

  • Core Concept on Gender Based Violence (GBV)
  • Life skills and Career Development.
  • Communication skills.
  • Participatory Vulnerability Analysis.
  • Economic Empowerment Opportunities.


LEWAF will facilitate trainings on the core concepts of Gender Base Violence (GBV) and will implement programs that will support ‘School Management Committees’ (SMCs) and ‘Parents Teachers Associations’ (PTAs) to enable them to prevent and effectively respond to incidents of GBV in their schools and communities.
