Objective: Aimed at reducing school-related gender-based violence, USAID’s Safe Schools Program started as a pilot project in Malawi and Ghana, where violence against girls in school was a national issue.  This was of concern to educators since a logical correlation exists between safe environments and children being more inclined to stay in school, as well as parents being more willing to send or continue sending their children, especially girls, to school.  The project succeeded in changing beliefs and attitudes on gender-based violence among parents, teachers, and male and female students in upper primary and lower secondary schools, laying the foundation for a safe, positive learning environment.  This success led to project expansion to the Dominican Republic, Senegal, Tajikistan, and Yemen.

The Doorways manuals, recently translated into Arabic, Russian, French, and Spanish, are designed to break the cycle of violence in and around schools by working directly with teachers and boys and girls (ages 10-14) to develop healthier and safer classrooms and with community members to help young people survive violent or abusive situations.   The set of manuals can be used in education programs to improve school quality and/or in conjunction with existing HIV/AIDS prevention work to better protect children from HIV infection.
