the CYBERSAFE Toolkit was developed and is implemented in EU by the Dutch experts from ICDI, one of LHSI partner, who will present and provide technical assistance to the local experts on adapting CYBERSAFE to the Ukrainian context.
The project will offer a Training of Trainers (ToT)to workshops facilitators, who will deliver workshops to other relevant professionals, introducing a modern approach to prevention of sexual harassment and protection of girls in targeted schools. In addition, a Ukrainian version of the CYBERSAFE online tool will be used as the game-based learning tool to be used during a workshop with students of 13-16 years old in five targeted schools of 2 cities.
An awareness raising campaign and information will target school’s students, teachers and parents, and will include a digital information campaign for teens developed with students’ active participation.
