Ziro: Forty teachers equipped with gender-sensitive pedagogy

The provincial directorate of primary and non-formal preschool education of Ziro organized from March 9 to 10, 2023 in Sapouy, a training course on gender-based violence in schools. The start of the works was given by the director Assata Bationo.

For forty-eight hours, the forty primary school teachers reinforced their knowledge and practices on various specific themes related to keeping girls in school.

Through a participatory approach based on the experience of the participants, the pedagogical supervisors Bakary Zango and Yoribé Hamado Kafando, went through several modules relating to gender and development.

The salient points of the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child were extensively explained to the participants.

Group and plenary work allowed participants to determine the principles of equality and equity between children, the forms, causes and consequences of violence against girls in schools.

At the teacher level, they have identified behaviors that teachers should henceforth banish or promote.

They urged them to change behavior and paradigm for the success of the young girl in school.

The provincial director of primary and non-formal preschool education of Ziro Assata Bationo was delighted with the results achieved by this teacher capacity building session.

Ms. Bationo urged participants to reinvest the knowledge gained with parents, students and their colleagues in schools.
