Both genders are empowered through increasing awareness on sexual violence and techniques in which to reduce it.
Leadership stems from teachers, parents, police and other community leaders who complete the "Train the Trainer' instructional course and can provide instructional guidance to children at every school on the island.
Both boys and girls are empowered to make choices that promote self-awareness and behaviour that is socially responsible. Concepts such as learning to communicate in a way that promotes healthy relationship are discussed and practiced. Awareness and education are the foundation which allow children to create a future that is positive, safe and supportive of healthy development. Empowered children are the leaders of tomorrow.
