Eighteen students from New Erima and Salvation Army primary schools have successfully completed two day training on Gender Based Violence in Port Moresby.
Hosted by Hope World-Wide Papua New Guinea Inc., and funded by the US Embassy, the training is the third of its kind in two months.
Violence, as defined by the students, is behaviour that should not be accepted in the community; be it verbal, emotional or sexual.
The training was aimed at helping the students identify different forms of violence that exist in their communities.
It mainly targets children between the ages of sixteen and twenty five.
The organization receives funding from donor agencies like UNICEF, Global Fund and AusAid.
It has three clinics in PNG, and works alongside NCD Health in conducting awareness in schools around the nation.
Students who participated were from grades five to eight and were later presented with Certificates of Participation. The next training is two weeks away and is expected to attract more youths.
