Plan International implemented the “Gender Responsive School Pilot Model” project for three years. The project worked with 20 schools in Hanoi for capacity development on school-related gender-based violence prevention and response. It aimed to provide adolescents, especially girls, with knowledge and skills, and engage and influence the policies of Hanoi Department of Education and Training as well as other government authorities, and elicit their support for upscaling the model.
Main findings of the evaluation:
- The project trained 2,158 teachers and school staff, 40 counsellors and 48,788 parents.
