Emma Organization for Human Development has conducted trainings in different schools in Erbil for 50 new teachers, social workers and directors on October 2017.
The training was delivered by 10 teachers and social workers who received previous trainings from Emma and became trainers in 2016 to become knowledgeable about GBV issues.
The teachers have added other important topics that they felt are necessary to be discussed, connected GBV with their schools and they gave real examples that happened inside their school to clarify the aim of the training.
They also discussed children’s right, violence against children, the ways of solving children’s problem that they face in the family and community along with other subjects.
Violence against women , girls and boys is one of the most prevalent human rights violations in the world. It knows no social, economic or national boundaries. Worldwide, an estimated one in three women will experience physical or sexual abuse in her lifetime.
Gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence. Victims of violence can suffer sexual and reproductive health consequences .
