Gender-Based Violence

Building on EDC’s experience in violence prevention, EDC works with adolescents  to reduce gender-based violence (GBV). Whether in life skills curriculum or sexual and reproductive health education activities, EDC engages young people in developing an understanding of positive gender relations, healthy interpersonal interactions, and methods for violence prevention.

EDC also works to reduce GBV in schools by training teachers and school administrators to create safe school environments, and by engaging parent-teacher associations and communities to supervise student safety.
