PHR Continues Training to Raise Teachers’ Awareness on Supporting Victims of Violence

31 May 2018 Training participants listening to PHR lawyer Ana Tavxelidze

On May 25, in the framework of the USAID/PROLoG-funded project “Unlock the Untapped Potential of Georgian Law to Respond to Gender-based Discrimination and Violence,”  representatives of “Partnership for Human Rights” (PHR) conducted a seminar at Baghdati municipality in West Georgia for 15 teachers, local social worker and media representatives. The topic of the seminar was “Teachers’ role in supporting gender-based violence child-victims and survivors.” 

The main objectives of the seminar was to raise the awareness of gender-based violence among local teachers, to analyze existing situation about children and women rights in Baghdati municipality, to support teachers in identifying process of gender-based violence (GBV) child-victims and survivors.

During the seminar participants learned the definition of gender-based violence and domestic violence, the protective measures and existing services that exist for victims, the legal regulations governing the reporting of GBV, and teachers’ role in the process of collecting evidence.

The meeting was interactive, and participants were especially interested in the process of identifying violence and their obligation to report it to the authorities. They referred to the effective role of local police and lack of awareness raising activities in the municipality.  Participants expressed their willingness to cooperate with PHR in working to combat gender-based violence.
