Voices against violence: A non-formal education programme for children and youth to help stop violence against girls and young women - Handbook for group leaders
This curriculum was developed by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and UN Women, with input from 20 pilot Member Organizations and two WAGGGS World Centres. It has been developed for worldwide use and can be delivered to girl-only or co-educational groups from the ages of 5 to 25 years. It provides young people with a wide variety of tools and expertise to understand the root causes of violence in their communities, to educate and involve their peers and communities to prevent such violence, and to learn about where to access support if violence is experienced.
The curriculum includes this handbook for peer educators that will help them deliver age-appropriate sessions, as well as age-appropriate non-formal educational activities.
