  • Timeline:

  • Theme:
    • Gender-based violence at schools and education

  • Description:
    • In this project, we investigate whether providing information about what is gender-based violence and how to respond to it can reduce the prevalence of violence at schools and improve educational outcomes.  To address this question, we implement a randomized control trial (RCT) where we provide the information to girls only, boys only, or both boys and girls. We disseminate the information on gender-based violence at schools through a short-animated video followed by a discussion session.
