An active launch for a dynamic project: ACTIV








More than 100 people - representatives of authorities, partner organizations, implementation teams, donors, teachers and school children beneficiaries and researchers from Romania, Moldova and Ukraine gathered online to launch this initiative that brings three countries together to protect children.

Elena Cofaru, project manager, Tdh Romania, showed the scale of the project that will involve both teachers and children: “The project will create a community of 250 students and 375 teachers, all actors of change, which will be developed at the level of regional level of Eastern Europe. ”


In the project "ACT - Act against violence", three delegations of Terre des hommes (from Romania, Moldova and Ukraine) join forces to combat the phenomenon of violence against children in schools. Its aim is to bring about positive changes in gender-based violence in schools in terms of attitudes and behavior on the part of children and in terms of strategies for preventing and combating violence by teachers. Gender-based violence means any type of violence caused by harmful social and gender norms.


As Irina Costache, Researcher, pointed out: "As long as we do not change our sensitivity and we do not understand that authority does not necessarily mean a high tone of voice, threats and labeling, it will be complicated to create programs that effectively eliminate violence"
