Gender ABC. Education Programme for Primary and Secondary Schools: the educational modules | Aidos

The Gender ABC education programme has been developed in 2018/2019 in the framework of the “Gender ABC” project, implemented by the End FGM European Network (coordinator), AIDOS (Italy), APF (Portugal), Médicos del Mundo (Spain) and TERRE DES FEMMES (Germany) and cofunded by the European Union. The programme includes  6 modules for primary school, 12 modules for secondary school and 3 supporting documents  for the implementation of the activities  provided by the partner organizations. By designing and delivering these modules in schools, the project aims at building trust among classmates, promoting healthy relationships within and outside the class and fostering young people’s understanding of the patriarchal structures,  unequal distribution of power between men and women,   gender stereotypes and social norms reinforcing gender-based violence (GBV). The Educational Modules are tools for educators, teachers and any other professional working with children and teenagers, involving the participants in a process of attitudinal change,  group learning and active acquisition of skills.
