Children’s Week under the slogan “Do not fight – be a friend” was marked in Podgorica from 1. to 7. October, and the Foundation has provided support to the organizers of this event – the Children’s Education Center “Pcelica”.
The theme of this year’s event was the peer violence and bulling. According to the latest research of the Institute for Education in Montenegro 2013, every other child in the school suffers some kind of violence. Therefore, the main objective was to contribute to the affirmation, promotion and protection of children’s rights and freedoms with special emphasis on the prevention of bullying, to increase the public awareness and the influence on the relevant authorities to actively work to protect the lives of the youngest.
During the children’s week through a series of creative workshops and activities the children had the opportunity to learn how to recognize violence, how to respond in such situations, and how to be tolerant and accept differences.
