Project Goal
Project Goal: Female adolescents (10-19 years) in 3 schools in 2 communities of BV/Triumph in Guyana feel safer from SGBV by December 2018
Overall Progress towards the project goal
Two project staff training sessions were completed based on final RRF and UNTF capacity building training workshop held in New York. Meetings were held with regional education officers, Headmistresses, parents, teachers and students of schools to introduce project and baseline survey process, methodology and ethical and safety measures. Based on results from baseline survey and first pre-test we had a clearer picture of the present situation of students re SGBV and the need for improving the safety of girls and achieving goal of our project. Forty four (44) students, 33 girls and 11 boys between the ages of 10-17 completed baseline survey questionnaires. Results of baseline showed that between 37% to 15% of girls and 54%- 36% of boys witnessed the use of drugs, alcohol, and verbal and physical abuse in homes among as well as neighbourhood violence. Between a third to a quarter of girls and between two thirds and a third of boys personally experienced verbal abuse, physical abuse and threats from family members in the past year. At school between 70% and 34% of girls experienced verbal as well as physical abuse from other students while half of all girl students also experienced name calling, insults and corporal punishment (permitted in schools in Guyana) from some teachers. Two female students received counselling at their school from H&S counsellor on exposure to DV in the home which they found to be particularly traumatizing and one of these parents also benefitted from counselling in relation to DV.

Nothing to Report
What progress has the project made during the reporting period towards achieving the outcome(s) and the project goal? For whom (specific beneficiaries)? How? Provide concrete evidence if possible. Feel free to include large successes, as well as unexpected and/or incremental changes.
During the first 6 months of the project 2 project staff training sessions were completed based on Help & Shelter’s RRF and the UNTF capacity building training workshop held in New York.

Baseline survey
Meetings were held with regional education officers, headmistresses of schools, parents, teachers and students of schools to introduce project and baseline survey methodology, confidentiality of information, reason for baseline and how it will be used , in keeping with required ethical and safety concerns for surveying children. Baseline questionnaires, consent forms for parents and children were developed, tested and reviewed by UNTF before use by students. Students participating in baseline survey had consent forms signed by parents/guardians and themselves prior to completing questionnaires and safety and ethical standards were communicated to students before the start of the survey. At one school girls and boys used separate classrooms for completing baseline questionnaires, at the other school, students were assigned to one room and students separated into groups based on sex.

Baseline survey -School Equality
The baseline survey found some traditional female roles, responsibilities and norms being replicated in school classrooms as 74% of girls and 60% of boys agreed that girls spent more time doing chores such as tidying, sweeping, and cleaning classrooms than boys. Boys were shown as participating more in sport and girls as participating more in class. Girls, were unsure who felt safer at school while most boys felt both sexes were equally safe, only 16% of girls felt safer. 53% of girls and 46% of boys did not know who experienced more threats/risks on their way to and from school. Overall boys were identified as dropping out of school most frequently.

Gender equitable norms
While there were encouraging responses re gender equitable norms by both girls and boys in regards to equal treatment for girls and boys in school, family and community, equal access to education for all school subjects and girls’ right to education even if they get married and have children after leaving school. There was also majority agreement that physical violence by boyfriend towards girlfriend was unacceptable even though less girls and boys found this unacceptable by girlfriend to boyfriend, and agreement that girls were not responsible for unwanted attention from male students.
Not so encouraging was the majority of girls 80% and boys 73% who agreed that adolescent/teenage girls should not be able to return to school after giving birth, while fewer girls 61% than boys 55% agreed that male students who impregnate female students should have to leave school, indicating gender disparity in attitudes towards pregnancy and schooling.
In relation to gender roles three quarters of girls and boys agreed that girls needed to find a good husband and boys a good job, while more girls 42% than boys 36% also agreed that house work and child care were not a man’s job. In relation to women’s suitability for jobs as managers, presidents and chief executives almost half of all boys 46%, agreed that such jobs were not suitable for women while only 34%, of girls agreed.

Student exposure to violence in and around the home among adult family members
A third of girls 32% and more than half of all boys 54% witnessed someone in the home during the past year or in previous years using drugs and or alcohol and behaving in a way that made them feel afraid. A third of girls and more than half of boys were exposed to shouting, yelling or loud arguing by adults in the home sometimes or many times during the past year, while 15% of girls and 36% of boys witnessed physical violence among family members in the home within the past year or in recent times. 73% of girls and 54% of boys also reported neighbourhood violence where they lived in the past year or previous year.

Students’ exposure to verbal/emotional/physical violence in the home
More than a third of girls, 36% and more than half of boys, 54%, were shouted at by family members living in the home sometimes or many times during the past year, while more than a quarter of all girls, 26%, and a third of all boys 36% reported experiencing name calling, insults or being cursed during the past year. Almost a third of girls, 30%, reported experiencing threats of abandonment during the past year from family members living in the home.
Overall more than a quarter of girls 27% and 64% of boys experienced physical violence by hand, belt or other object from a family member living in the home during the past year. More than a third of all girls and boys experienced having their hair pulled, being pinched or having their ears twisted in the past year, while one third of all girls 33% and a little less than one third of boys 30% experienced threats sometimes or many times during the past year from family members in the home

Student experiences with SGBV in school
A majority of girls 70%, and 50% of boys experienced name calling, cursing and insults from other students in their class or school sometimes or many times during the past year while 12% of girls and 18% of boys said they received threats. Overall one third of all girls 34%, and a little more than a quarter of boys 27%, experienced being hit, cuffed, pushed or physically hurt sometimes or many times during the past year by students at school and 15% of girls said they had been called sexual names sometimes or many times in the past year while 6% said they had been shown sexual photos, pictures or received sexual texts. For boys 10% said they had been shown sexual photos, pictures or videos sometimes during the past year.

Depression/suicidal thoughts
50% of girls and 50% of boys felt sad or depressed sometimes or many times while 12% of girls and 30% of boys said they experienced suicidal thoughts many times.

Teachers
Overall half of all girls and a third of all boys said that they had experienced name calling or insults by some teachers at school. A further 58% of girls and 50% of boys said that girl students were hit sometimes or many times by teachers to get them to behave or discipline them and 84% of girls and 67% of boys said that boy students were similarly hit by teachers, indicating high levels of physical punishment in schools due to the permitted use of corporal punishment.
55% of girls and 58% of boys said teachers did not treat students differently based on race, religion, income, disability, while 15% of girls and 17% of boys disagreed and 30% of girls and 25% of boys did not know. Additionally 31% of girls and 70% of boys felt teachers did not treat students unfairly, while 25% of girls and 30% of boys felt they did and 44% of girls did not know.
71% of girls and 70% of boys agreed that teachers who have a sexual relationship with a student should be dismissed and not allowed to teach again. Less girls 58% and boys 50% however agreed that teachers who impregnate a student should be dismissed and not allowed to teach again.

Knowledge of services, child rights, HFLE programme
49% of girls and 30% of boys said they knew to get help if they were abused at home and identifed H&S, police, family members and teachers as places/persons for help. 71% of girls and 50% of boys also said they knew where to go to if abused at school, but fewer were able to identify places/ persons i.e. MOE, Headmistresses and teachers. 50% of girls and 80% of boys had not heard of child rights. More girls, 85% than boys 50% said HFLE was taught in their class, the disparity in this response, was noted and warrants more investigation.

Pre Test for sensitization & awareness programme for students
Results from first pre-test showed that 83% of students were unable to identify any examples of high or low self esteem, 71% identified correctly that sexual organs were what biologically identified the sex of girl or boy, but had some difficulty in understanding the difference between sex and gender. Students in identifying jobs only men can do chose traditional male dominated types of work such as mechanics, electricians or soldier over jobs traditionally performed by women. More than half of all student, 61%, were unable to identify any forms of GBV and of the 37% who gave examples, these were incorrect or not applicable. 72% of students were unable to identify any effects of GBV, with boys at Mon Repos Primary unable to identify any effects of GBV whatsoever. (1483)

Counselling
Two female students received on site counselling from H & S counsellor about their exposure to DV occurring among family members in their homes and how this was affecting them. One students counselled had written “please help me” on her baseline form and given her name and address which was followed up.

What are the main lessons learned so far? Please describe what worked well and what did not work well and explain why. Highlight key lessons that can feed into learning and planning of new projects/initiatives. Please do not hesitate to highlight how mistakes might have led to new approaches, ideas and/or results.
The results of the baseline survey has helped Help & Shelter to have a clearer picture of the present situation of students in relation to attitudes and perception to some gender equitable norms and some aspects of equality in schools. Significantly it captured student experiences and exposure to verbal, emotional, physical and sexual violence and abuse in homes, community and in schools among students and in teacher/student interactions. It gave insight into students’ knowledge and perceptions of who or which services they could access for prevention and protection from SGBV or other types of abuse in the home or school, revealed students’ knowledge of child rights, laws for protection of children and if the Health & Family Life Education programme was being taught in their schools. The Baseline also captured views and students’ perceptions if students could put an end to bullying and mistreatment in schools and their willingness to participate in activities/ programmes to help change practices/norms that allow abuse, bullying or mistreatment of students (59% of girls and 64% of boys said yes to participating).

Results of the baseline survey, outlined in the progress summary above, showed clearly the need for increased students safety from SGBV in their schools and homes, and communities, as the survey found worrying levels of verbal, psychological and physical abuse experienced by students in homes, between family members at home, among students in schools and from some teachers in schools. Experiences of sexual abuse among students surveyed was low but we would have expected that and would have expected possible under-reporting due to the sensitive nature of this issue and other SGBV issues. The baseline also revealed some unexpected responses to gender equitable norms especially re the majority of students agreeing that schoolgirls who become pregnant should not be allowed to return to school after giving birth, and acceptance of division of labour and traditional gender roles for women re survey statement women need to find a good husband and boys a good job. It was clear also that issues around equality and some gender equitable norms need further conversations and investigation such as the disparity in tolerance re boys right to hit their girlfriends and girls right to hit their boyfriends. In a few instances responses from boys were more gender equitable than those by girls, except in the area of non- traditional jobs for women such as CEOs, managers, presidents etc. even though this may have to do with smaller number of boys participating in the survey than girls. Girls were generally less confident in giving responses and scoring themselves high in relation to ……………….. and tended to use don’t know more than boys. On knowledge of services, child rights and HFLE programme in schools girls outperformed boys in being able to give examples. The significantly large percentage of boys 30% experiencing suicidal thoughts is cause for concern as Guyana has the highest number of suicides per population in the world with a significant number of these, teen suicides. (501)

The baseline survey confirmed and reinforced the need for focusing on SGBV in schools and among girls as our project goal. Our sensitization and awareness programme manual (1) for students in schools in the first year focuses on key areas covered in the baseline survey including a module on depression and suicide prevention and our pre and post tests are and will be based on manual modules in order to track if accurate knowledge is being received, understood and assimilated by students.

As it relates to outcome 2, Education professionals and community service providers in the 3 schools have capacities to enhance prevention and provide adequate response to SGBV for students, dates for our first teacher training workshop have been fixed for August and we will be placing increased emphasis on teacher/student communication, school punishment vs discipline and other perceptions of shared by students in the baseline.

The project will be up-scaling:
i. Capacity building training for service providers, teachers, PTAs, school welfare officers, CBOs, FBOs, support groups for increased knowledge transfer, improved
competencies and skills and best practices for prevention and response to GBV etc.
ii. Sensitization sessions for men and boys on gender, male norms, attitudes and behaviours related to GBV.

Please describe the key issues and/or challenges that have affected project implementation during the reporting period. For each issue and challenge identified, please provide the action(s) taken to manage the issues and/or challenges.
Original plan to use 1 Grade 5 class at Primary School and 1 Grade 9 class at Secondary Level as a representative sample for baseline did not work, as it was difficult to reach adequate numbers of parent(s), guardians from these classes to explain process/ methodology, ethical and safety concerns as regard children’s participation in the baseline survey and have them sign the individual parent/guardian consent forms. We originally envisioned between 40- 50 students participating. Plan was revised and we used a number of different strategies in order to get a representative sample of students for the baseline survey such as:
 Having special class meetings with parents of all the 3 Grade 5 classes at Mon Repos Primary School, ethical and safety concerns were communicated to parents attending meeting
 Meeting with students from Grade 7 and Grade 9 classes at BV Secondary School to inform them about baseline and the need for individual consent forms to be filled out by their parents giving permission for them to participate in survey and for those students who parents had signed consent forms to fill out their own signed consent forms also agreeing to participate in survey. Children were asked to inform their parents about above. Students at the secondary school were enthusiastic about participating in survey at the class meetings. Ethical and safety measures were communicated to students
 Times were fixed for parents to come in individually to schools, as their scheduled allowed, to meet Help & Shelter facilitators receive information on baseline and sign consent forms if they so wished. Safety & ethical standards were communicated to each parent before signing consent forms or not.
 Help & Shelter information sheets on baseline and safety and security measures and consent sheets were given to Mon Repos Primary students to take to their parents in case they were interested in agreeing to have their children participate.
In the end we received 47 signed parent consent forms, 28 from BV Secondary school and 19 from Mon Repos Primary School and 46 signed consent forms, 20 from BV Secondary students and 21 from Mon Repos Primary students. 98% of parent consent forms were signed at class or individual meeting with Help & Shelter facilitators and parents at schools. As mentioned 44 students from both schools completed baseline survey questionnaires.
Help & Shelter’s project had initially identified The Guyana School of Agriculture (GSA) as one the project schools but we encountered difficulties in finalizing agreement for their participation. We looked at other available schools in the area and identified Mon Repos Primary as the best option taking into consideration that its location was in the same community as the GSA, it is one of the larger schools in the areas with a good mix of both girls and boys, (the other primary school, BV Primary had more boys than girls on its register), and permission was given from the Regional Education Officer and Headmistress to be one of the project schools
Complying with the safety and ethical measures for surveying children took much longer than expected and so time lines for starting other project activities as below could not be started:
 Conduct programme of sensitization, awareness and modeling protected behaviors and strategies for school students.
 Implement a creative arts programme for in and out of school youths
 Provision of on-site counseling support
Activities identified will start in the upcoming September-December term. Provision of on-site counselling support will start effectively when the programme of sensitization and awareness starts in schools.
Administrative formalities in respect to gaining access to school by Help & Shelter was also responsible for delays in achieving project time-line as was frequent rescheduling of meetings with students and parents re-baseline and term and national Grade 6 examinations Meeting held with Regional Education Officer re approval for access to schools
Project activities have to be rescheduled but we on track to be achieved

Please highlight key anticipated milestones over the next six months of the project implementation.
Over the next 6 months we anticipate as outlined in our RRF to start implementation of the following activities :
 Programme of sensitization, awareness and modeling protected behaviors and strategies for school students.
 Creative arts programme for in and out of school youths
 Develop training modules and conduct training workshops for education professional
 Preparation of action plans for SGBV response in schools
 Provision of on-site counseling support
 Preparation of protocol and procedure guidelines to respond to SGBV in schools
 Revision of HFLE module to include SGBV
 Continue development of data collection tools to measure output indicators
