Sustainable Implementation of HPV in Daily School Activities

On July 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 29th 2019, HROC offered the training “Sustainable Implementation of Healing and Preventing Violence in Daily School Activities” for teachers in neighboring schools, in collaboration with Kimonyi Sector and JICA Volunteer.

Mujawamariya Christine (Sector Education Officer of Kimonyi Sector), Kwizera Jeremie (HROC Facilitator) and Risa Sonoda (JICA Volunteer in Musanze District) facilitated the training, and 88 teachers from GS Kitabura, GS Birira, CS Kivumu and Keystone School participated. They learned how they can avoid any kind of physical or verbal violence in their schools, how they can peacefully mediate children’s conflicts, and how they can apply those techniques in daily lessons with learners-centred approach.

The teachers in charge of class management received follow-up materials at the end of the training, which are to be observed by HROC once in a semester. This system enables the teachers to be continuously conscious of non-violent management and mediation at schools, and enhance the measurement of effectiveness of HPV as HROC activity.

Punishment only results in negative feedback which is “respect as fears”
