Terre des hommes is looking for two trainers to work within the REVIS project in Romania.
Terre des hommes Hungary, together with Terre des hommes Romania, Brave Phone from Croatia, CIM from Serbia, SAPI from Bulgaria launched a two-year EU-funded project entitled “REVIS: Responding to peer violence among children in schools and adjacent settings”. Started in January 2021, the project is implemented in four countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, and Serbia with the aim to:
- prevent, combat, and respond to peer violence among children in schools by transforming social and gender norms and behaviours.
- create space for children to challenge social and gender norms that lead to peer violence and to become change makers able to develop sustainable solutions that address violence.
The project design is based on a regional qualitative and participatory research conducted in 2020 by the Terre des hommes Foundation and its partners in Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Moldova, Romania, and Serbia. The research has explored how deeply rooted social and gender norms lead to different types of violence against children in schools and how this violence manifests. Building on the findings and recommendations of this regional research, the REVIS project will develop a tailored training curriculum focused on promoting positive norms and challenging harmful behaviours.
The project will engage ten schools in each four countries and train a total of 8 trainer of trainers (two per country) and 80 facilitators (20 per country) from the targeted schools based on the tailored curriculum. The trainer of trainers will be responsible for building the capacity of the facilitators who will in turn conduct participatory activities with children and young people (around 400 in each country) and other school teachers and professionals to prevent, combat and respond to peer-to-peer violence in and around schools and other educational settings (like afterschool) as well as to empower children to address the problem through their own solutions.
