IVoices against Violence curriculum - Badgen partnership with UN Women, WAGGGS has developed a non-formal education curriculum to support girls, young women, boys and young men to: 

  • Identify different forms of violence
  • Understand their rights
  • Gain the skills in advocacy and leadership to claim these rights and end violence against girls.

Voices against Violence is an international, non-formal co-educational initiative which engages girls, young women, boys, young men, adults, parents and the community in the conversations about violence against girls. Voices against Violence will be delivered through WAGGGS’ national Member Organizations, partners and governments.

The curriculum will help five million children and young people learn to talk about violence, understand its root causes, recognise their rights and develop the skills and confidence to access those rights for themselves and others. It will empower girls and boys, young women and young men to be leaders, to speak out and take action. 

This curriculum provides interactive, child- and youth-centred ways for young people to talk about relationships, gender equality and abuse, within a safe and supportive environment. Learn more about how the curriculum works.

Nine in 10 girls say their involvement in Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting education programmes has to a large or moderate extent provided them with the skills to take action on issues important to them.

WAGGGS 2012 Evaluation Report

Non-formal educational programmes make a difference. This curriculum provides knowledge, skills and opportunities to change attitudes and to help stop the violence. Safety is the key element in delivering the curriculum. The curriculum creates safe and supportive sessions for young people to learn about their rights and to discuss and challenge violence against girls.

To measure the effectiveness of the curriculum, WAGGGS has developed a global monitoring and evaluation framework that compares participants understanding and attitude toward violence against girls both before and after the programme. The monitoring and evaluation framework aims to contribute vital data to the global discussion of what are the effective measures to tackle gender-based violence amongst young people.

Download the Voices against Violence leaflet, or Partner Brochure to find out more about the curriculum. The curriculum is available for both Girl Guides and Girls Scouts and non-Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting organizations to use.

Last year, the girls and women of our Association joined in the 16 Days of Activism by making a pledge to STOP THE VIOLENCE. The pledge event took place before our Annual Thanksgiving Service in celebration of our 94th Birthday as an Association. During the Church Service at the Cathedral Church of St. Michael and All Angels, we shared the Stop the Violence Campaign Video with the congregation and encouraged them to add their voice to the Campaign and to TAKE ACTION to end Violence beyond the 16 days.

This year, as we celebrate our 95th anniversary (Nov. 30th), we have ensured that in the Action on our Theme: 'Save the Girl, Save the World', the message to STOP THE VIOLENCE contines... Let's show some Love and END VIOLENCE NOW!
