The research project Gender-based violence in schools in Romania, Moldova and Ukraine is one of the first international attempts to systemically and comparatively investigate the phenomenon of gender-based violence (VBG) at the level of Eastern Europe, by analyzing the situation of the children and their teachers in the secondary cycle from the 25 partner schools within the ACTIV project: ACT Against Violence!
The project is carried out by Terre des hommes Foundation in Romania, in partnership with Reprezentanța din Republica Moldova a Fundației Terre des Hommes Lausanne – Elveția and The Separate Division of Terre des Hommes Foundation in Ukraine, and benefits from a funding of 194,067 euros, through the Active Citizens Fund Romania program, funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants 2014-2021. In the ACTIV project (with a duration of two years) we will address the problem of VBG in 25 schools through activities addressed to 375 teachers and 250 students from schools in Romania, The Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. This report is a first step in this direction, giving us a clearer understanding of what VBG looks like in Eastern Europe.
