Opening Our Eyes

Addressing gender-based violence in South African Schools: a manual for educators

The Opening Our Eyes manual assists teachers, parents and learners to identify, reduce and prevent gender-based violence in schools. As a professional development tool for schools, the manual makes important references to overarching legal frameworks, including preventative measures, reporting obligations and remedies for victims of sexual violence. The revised manual has been tested in nine provinces of South Africa with the support of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and UNICEF. Testing has shown that the manual is effective in providing information, education and skills for addressing sexual violence in schools.
