Learner’s Booklets that will help children protect themselves from all forms of violence, conflict and disasters have been launched by government.
The first booklet titled ‘Say No To Violence’ equips children with tips to identify acts of violence, report on the acts to authorities and, ultimately, help put an end to the violence they experience. The second booklet, ‘Know your risk! Prepare to Act,’ equips children with the necessary information, knowledge and skills to prevent conflict, violence and disasters like floods, fire, strong winds, lightening, earthquakes, landslides and droughts.
UNICEF’s Representative in Uganda Ms. Aida Girma says the booklets are great resource for children to learn about their rights and, importantly, the actions they can take to protect their rights
