C-Change launched program to mitigate gender-based violence in DRC

Friday, January 13, 2012

School Discipline Officer renounces use of corporal punishment to students in DRC Jan 13, 2012 | C-Change is implementing a program to prevent and mitigate school-related, gender-based violence (SRGBV) in 31 schools in Katanga Province in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The program uses the USAID Safe Schools Doorways curricula to promote positive changes in students, teachers, school administrators, parents, and community members on practices, attitudes, and knowledge concerning gender-based violence.

Using results of the formative research carried out for this SRGGV intervention, C-Change has also developed community media campaigns that air on local radio and TV channels, and has created comic books that incorporate relevant messages to create awareness around the issues of SRGBV. The messages focus on improving attitudes and behaviors that contribute to hostile environments for students. Materials developed for this intervention are available on C-Hub. Additional information about this intervention is available on the Where We Work/DRCongo page.
