Connect with Respect: Preventing Gender-based Violence in Schools is a classroom program for preventing school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) in the context of lower secondary schools. It was designed through a collaboration led by the East Asia and Pacific United Nations Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI) SRGBV working group, with participation from Plan International, UN Women, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The training workshop described in this report was arranged in order to introduce the program to educators, academics, policy-makers, researchers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other stakeholders working on bullying and violence prevention in Thailand. The workshop briefed the participants about the concepts of SRGBV and bullying and how to prevent them, as well as provided an introduction to existing data on bullying in Thailand. An overview of the program was provided, and participants were invited to plan how to use the program in Thai educational context.
