Say NO to sexual violence in schools 

\r\n\r\nSix girls from different countries talk about their experiences of sexual violence in and around school. Produced, and at times filmed by other young people* this film is an honest and intimate look at school related gender based violence.\r\n\r\nThe film focuses on girls born in the year 2000 as part of series “Millennium Children” that looks at how the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have benefited or failed them.\r\n\r\nAs we reach the end date of the MDGs and set out new targets, young people from across the globe conclude that school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) is destroying girls’ education and that the issue needs to be addressed – fast.\r\n\r\nSRGBV limits enrolment, undermines participation, and increases dropout rates due to fear of violence and underage pregnancy. Girls should not have to live in fear. Let them learn and achieve their dreams.\r\n\r\nHear the voices of the Millennium Children and vote now to unlock the power of girls: Girl4President\r\n\r\nVideo courtesy of Plan International. *Plan youth from the engagement project ‘Global Voice for Change’ played a key part in the Millennium Children video, trained by Plan staff to be interviewers and camera operatives. This unique project seeks to give 15-year-olds a voice, and at the same time train other young people to report, produce and film their stories.
