During this lunchtime conference (12:30-14:00), speakers demonstrate global commitments to putting a stop to school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV). VVOB presents its strategies te eliminate SRGBV in Cambodia, Vietnam and Suriname. Participation is free, but registration is required via this link.


School-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) affects millions of children around the world. Fuelled by persisting gender norms and stereotypes, and enforced by unequal power dynamics, SRGBV negatively affects learners’ lives in many ways: from low self-esteem and depression, to early and unintended pregnancy, low educational outcomes and/or school dropouts.
