Connect with Respect School-based prevention of violence against women and girls
Connect with Respect is a curriculum tool to assist teachers across the Asia-Pacific region. It is based on evidence around violence prevention, changing gender norms and school-based interventions in the region and beyond. UN Women is working in partnership with the Timor-Leste Ministry of Education and three selected schools in Dili to adapt the Connect with Respect Toolkit for extra-curricular educational programming in the Timorese context, complementing the existing curriculum. The project will focus on developing skills and networks to change harmful social norms, through arts and educational programmes, engaging male and female students, their teachers, parents and the wider community.
