We 4 education

description
“We 4 education” is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthen civil society, establish democratic values, protect human rights and fundamental freedoms, and create a fair and inclusive environment for young people and vulnerable groups in Georgia by supporting non-formal education and promoting community development.

The problem we are trying to solve:

According to the recent research of UNICEF, the knowledge and awareness about various forms of violence against children is extremely low in Shida-Kartli, Kvemo-Kartli and Samtskhe-Javakheti. According to the research of the GYLA (2018) – “Violence against child – research of the need” – does not exist the violence prevention quality programs in Georgia. There is not any kind of violence prevention quality program in Georgia, that why it is important for us.

Psycho-emotional stability in young people is important because they can concentrate on development and learning. This problem threatens the future of young people, as majority of them are unable to integrate into a healthy cultural and psycho-emotional environment.

The solution we are proposing:

Children will inform about various form of violence as well as how to prevent themselves from violence and have a knowledge that to do if they will be face of the violence.

 

It will rising awareness of children about various form of violence.

 

Training / workshop – trainer will explain how to identify and prevent violence against children;

Create blogs – participants will write blogs about violence against children;

Create video – participants will take 2-3 minutes video;

Make presentations – participants will make presentations about various form of violence against children;

Essay competition – participants will write essays - “I’m safe”;

Create comics – participants will create comics (with professional painter) about violence;

Create posters - participants will create posters about violence against children;

Create book – at the end of the project we will collect all activities and make a book.
