This project helps participants to understand gender norms and other issues related to gender based violence. Participants are also informed of where to turn to for help and anger management and conflict resolution skills.“Workplace Education Programmes facilitate an increase in knowledge which creates a shift in attitudes related to GBV. This change will contribute to the prevention of violence and the reduction of GBV with victims as well as perpetrators being equipped to notice early signs of GBV, learn methods and strategies to counter abusive behaviour, and relevant references to seek help and deal with these issues effectively.”  Schemel Patrick, Membership Services Officer and Facilitator said.Peer educators are committed to disseminating information in their workplaces and communities in an effort to reduce the prevalence of GBV in Guyana.Ms. Patrick further stated that GBV is one of Guyana’s most prevailing social issues and that both men and women alike are unaware of healthy alternatives to abuse in order to prevent the cycle of violence, thus the GBCHA uses the successful method of workplace education developed in the HIV response to scale up the response to GBV awareness and prevention.The GBCHA would like to thank USAID, Help and Shelter and Cara Lodge for their support. The next Peer Educator Training would be held in July.
