The project “Together against school violence”


FICE Romania is currently developing the pilot project “Together against school violence” for sustaining the regional networks (FARD), component of the program “Procopil”. This has been imposed by the growth of school violence phenomena to a worrying level. The purpose of the project is the awakening to the risks that aggressive behaviour has on the development and social integration of children and teenagers.

The project addresses children from Teleorman county. The activities comprised in the project have the goal of forming a school network militating against violence through preventive actions.

The objective is informing 5000 children and adolescents from 10 schools, as well as parents, on the risks of violence; involving 500 teachers in preventive actions, preparing a study on the causes of violence in school and of the ways of preventing it. Indirectly, all the pupils, teachers and parents from Teleorman county will be involved.

The expert team working on the project is made out of 4 psychologists, a sociologist and a pedagogue. Partners to the project are experts from countries with related experience: France, Netherlands. Finland, Norway, Germany.

FICE Romania collaborates for the project with the several N.G.O.s and with the Scholar Inspectorate of  Teleorman county, which assures the participation of the schools. Following the model of similar experiences in the Occident, the preventive actions start from preschool ages. There are actions addressing children, families and teachers.

On the basis of the regularly good cooperation between FICE Romania and papers, radios and tv stations, the project is promoted. The results will be abstracted into a final seminary which will present the obtained results, which will identify ways of extending preventing activities. The members of the school network will meet and will set new directions for continuing the pilot project and for gaining new members to the preventing network.
