AEC joins International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Alternative Education Center joined the celebration of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women observed on November 25, 2023, and the UNiTE campaign from November 25th to December 10th, an initiative of 16 days of activism to help end women's rights violations. This 2023 campaign Invest to Prevent Violence against Women and Girls calls on all people to show how much they care about ending violence against these groups and call on governments all over the world to share how they intentionally invest in the prevention of gender-based violence.

At AEC, students recognized perspectives and discussed ideas on how to support women at home, in society, in the country, and in the world to promote the global goals of gender equality and reduced inequalities. Students identified anger as the root cause of violence. They shared how to regulate their own anger by playing Totika game on anger. Then, they created a storybook to describe the many things they are thankful for about the woman they love and care about in life and are willing to protect from any form of violence.
