Non Violence Campaign
The YWCA of Lebanon was the first Lebanese NGO to launch a non-violence campaign, calling for the active participation of all community members in preventing all forms of violence in society towards the development of a safe social environment by way of:
Conducting gender-awareness and non-violence workshops at schools and YWCA centers to promote tolerance, gender equity, and respect for human rights among young people. The workshops are youth-friendly and youth-led. They provide an empowering space to discuss gender issues and social structures, as well as to understand the scope of violence against women and develop the means for intervention.
Providing workshops for teachers of the KG and elementary levels on conflict resolution skills and early detection of physical or sexual abuse of children who are under their care.
