After the earthquake in 2014, there has been a number of filed cases girls being altered to the violence especially living in open areas and in the temporary tents. This Stop the Violence – project focuses on raising awareness on the situation and encouraging scouts to take a stand against it by training scout leaders and teachers on what to do and alternatives for reacting it. After the training and peer support the scout leaders and teachers are more aware and can act if they suspect on of their scouters or student is being/has been violated.
