Schools offer a valuable space for children to learn and adopt pro-social behaviours that can help prevent violence. Because children gather in schools, these facilities are ideal for the scale-up of violence prevention interventions.
Education and life skills initiatives are one of the seven evidence-based strategies that the INSPIRE package encourages countries to adopt to end violence against children. Implementers and evaluators from Uganda and India will share their experiences of delivering and scaling-up interventions in schools.
This online seminar is jointly hosted by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the INSPIRE Working Group.
