PHR Conducts Meeting with Teachers in Tskhaltubo Municipality, West Georgia

04 May 2018 PHR lawyer talking about the women’s and children’s rights

On April 26, within 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 the NGO Partnership for Human Rights (PHR) conducted a seminar at Tskaltubo Municipal Assembly in Imereti for 14 teachers. The topic of the seminar was teachers’ role in supporting gender-based violence child victims and survivors.  

The main objective of the seminar was raising local teachers’ awareness of gender-based violence (GBV), analyzing the existing situation regarding children’ and women’s rights in Tskaltubo municipality, and supporting teachers in the process of identifying GBV child victims and survivors.

Discussions during the seminar led to defining gender-based violence and domestic violence, discussion of protective measures and existing services for victims, legal regulations regarding the reporting of GBV, and teachers’ role in collecting evidence of GBV.

The meeting was interactive and participants were especially interested in the process of identifying GBV and their obligation to report to the authorities. They underlined the lack of awareness-raising activities in the municipality. At the end of the seminar, the participants expressed their willingness to cooperate with “Partnership for Human Rights” in identifying GBV among their students and their families.
