The Safe Schools Program has just released the Student and Teacher Baseline Report on School-Related Gender-Based Violence in Machinga District, Malawi which details the methodology, population characteristics, and results of a recently conducted survey on gender-based physical, psychological and sexual violence at schools including in the classroom and on the school grounds as well as going to and from school. Students and teachers were asked questions about the type of violence, abuse and mistreatment that boys and girls experience at school; who perpetrates the violence; where violence occurs; if there are other school practices or conditions that are inappropriate, place pupils at risk or potentially interfere with their schooling; and the effectiveness of reporting. The study was conducted in Malawi in April 2006 by DevTech Systems, Inc. and the Centre for Educational Research and Training (CERT) through the USAID-funded Safe Schools Program.
