On Saturday, May 8, at an event held at the American Institute in the city of Cochabamba, Ipas Bolivia, together with the Ministry of Education, launched the "Curriculum documents for the prevention of sexual violence in schools and colleges" kit. This package, which consists of 11 materials including videos, guides and primers, was developed in coordination with the ministry's primary and secondary departments over two years and finally saw the light of day at Saturday's event.
After the protocol ceremony, which was attended by Minister Adrián Quelca, the working day moved to the classrooms of the American Institute, where district education directors from all over the country gathered to discuss, analyse and propose an implementation plan for this kit for Bolivian classrooms. Once the activity was over, the attendees met again in plenary to share their arrangements and conclusions.
This material, as agreed, will be used as a basis for the implementation of the prevention of sexual violence in all areas of children's lives in the country. Undoubtedly, this is an important challenge for any teacher, not only because of the complexity of the issue itself, but also because of its importance for the preservation of the safety, well-being and integrity of Bolivia's children.
