Anti Bullying Brigades

Executing Institution: Corporacion Siempre Contigo
Location: San Miguel, Santiago
Grant Value:USD 4,000
This innovative project addresses a growing problem in educational facilities in Chile: bullying. Corporacion Siempre Contigo implements the Anti-Bullying Brigades project in selected schools, building upon its beneficiaries that have attention deficit disorder. As children with attention deficit disorder are more likely to be targeted by bullies, the project will train 15 of its beneficiaries to be agents and apply conflict resolution techniques, in coordination with parents and teachers. Using this approach, the project will reduce bullying activity and actively involve students, especially those with attention deficit disorder, in the process to improve their own social skills.
