EUMM Field Office Mtskheta visits school at Tserovani IDP settlement to talk about campaign against gender violence

On 08 December, EUMM Field Office Mtskheta visited the school at Tserovani IDP settlement, where it presented information about the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence to approximately 100 school children. The children heard about EUMM’s White Ribbon campaign and an EUMM Monitor from the Netherlands talked to the kids about his experience as a Dutch police officer dealing with different types of violence. The EUMM Gender Advisor who was in attendance commented that the youth at the school in Tserovani must have been hard at work preparing as they held a lot of knowledge about different types of violence and actively took and wore white ribbons in support of the campaign to end violence against women and girls. The kids also presented EUMM with their own depictions of violence through skits, film and a live music performance.
It was a positive experience for both the children and the EUMM Monitors who participated and presented!
