BENEFITING: Children International
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), violence within marriages and free union relationships starts when the couple is dating. The WHO also indicates that 3 out of 10 teenagers reported that they suffered violence at the hands of the person they were dating. For the youth in our community, having a boyfriend or a girlfriend is an important matter, but unfortunately statistics show that not every relationship is a positive relationship based on trust, respect and love. The objective of this proposal is to help bring awareness about the cycle of violence and prevent domestic violence by working in high schools to reach youth about this important social topic.
Through a partnership between our Quito-based Youth Council and our local community youth leaders group, we will have a series of educational workshops at five schools. Your donation will help bring these workshops to 750 teenagers in Quito.
