Strong to Fight Bullying

Description

Students at an elementary school in the Dominican Republic learn to talk through problems, express themselves, and identify when to seek help from adults to prevent bullying.

In this community many children are abused physically and verbally at home. They carry these behaviors and emotions to school by hitting their friends, playing violently, and being undisciplined in the classroom.

Former World Vision sponsored child Sucra Cuevas Trinidad, 33, is a 5th grade teacher who leads an anti-bullying workshop for the children.

After participating in the workshop, many children are more dedicated to learning and more respectful friends to each other.

All teachers and administrative staff at the school are also trained in the the anti-bullying strategies for students.

In partnership with UNICEF and the local Catholic Church, World Vision provides training to teachers, workshop supplies, and t-shirts for students. The program is at 10 schools in the community.
