The Power of Collective Impact, Solidarity and Healing: Ending School-Related Gender-Based Violence

This year marks the 6th year that the Global Working Group to end School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV WG) has been commemorating the 16 days of Activism to end gender-based violence. It is also the 30th anniversary of the 16 Days campaign to end Gender-Based Violence. The SRGBV WG will harness, once again, the power of collective impact to bring to light the interconnectedness of different actors in ending gender-based violence in and through education. The campaign will put a spotlight on the power of young leaders and feminist networks who create vital circles of support for those affected by unsafe learning environments; the instrumental role of teachers and school leaders as change makers and the importance of nurturing their well-being; and amplify tools and solutions for education systems to prevent school-related gender-based violence.

Join our solidarity circle

A solidarity circle is an informal gathering, organised by grassroots activists that brings young people together with the goal of collective care. The purpose of a solidarity circle is to facilitate healing and provide a safe and brave space for students and teachers to be vulnerable. The circles will be intentionally inclusive and bring together intersections of all identities.



Tools and solutions for education systems to prevent school-related gender-based violence

Watch back on our virtual event showcasing tools and solutions to address school-related gender-based violence in and through the education system. The discussion presents the key tools, approaches and insights from implementing programmes to end SRGBV. The tools presented include among others the USAID Measurement Toolkit, the Whole school minimum standards to prevent SRGBV.
