In Moldova, schools and local communities are promoting men's engagement in child protection and nonviolence. 

At the beginning of the academic year, 31 schools and local communities from three regions of the Republic of Moldova benefited from a series of activities that promoted gender development, peer-to-peer education, and the engagement of men and boys in nonviolence, anti-bullying, and more. The activities were carried out as part of the “For a violence-free life for children in Moldova” project, implemented by Terre des Hommes Moldova and supported by Oak Foundation. The project aims to prevent child abuse by emphasizing men and boys’ engagement in child protection and education. The activity leaders organized events in their communities focusing on the above-mentioned topics, including family sports competitions, gender education for parents, social theater, and workshops.
