Students learn best in schools that provide safety and social support. However, some young people experience violence and harassment in, around, and on the way to school. This includes gender-based violence (GBV), which can take many different forms. As a teacher, you can play an important role in preventing the expression of gender-based violence in the school setting. Teachers, school principals and the broader education system can provide positive role models, empower children and youth to have healthy and respectful relationships, and deliver a violence prevention programme within their curriculum. This tool has been created to help schools in Asia and the Pacific to do all of these things. This tool is the result of a collaborative effort among partners in the East Asia and Pacific United Nations Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI) School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV) working group. This includes: Plan International, UN Women, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
