COVID-19 has had a huge impact around the world, and we are no exception. Due to travel restrictions & bans worldwide, people are no longer travelling, which means no volunteers. This is a big loss of physical help and financial income from the volunteer donation. And given the current global climate it may be a while before we see any more volunteers.
The children and families that Globalteer support are suffering now, and our staff and teachers are concerned, as they also have no safety net in Peru or Cambodia. With such uncertainty ahead we need your support now more than ever so we can continue our work as soon as quarantine is lifted and keep our staff & teachers employed in their vital work.
is a UK Registered Charity working in Asia and Latin America. Our Child Protection Module teaches children how to keep themselves safe.
A programme designed for children that was also designed by them and with them.
If we can prepare them for the world that exists outside of the 4 walls of the classroom, we can extend our reach, we can keep more children safe. We can do better.
Globalteer’s Child Safety Module is designed as part policy, part research and part classroom curriculum. It is comprised of 8 modules of key safety issues for children, everything from which parts of your body can’t be touched by others to how to cross the road safely.
The idea is that by teaching our children how to keep themselves safe, we acknowledge that our existing reach only goes so far and actively seek to extend our commitment to protecting children.
To follow through with our responsibility and commitment to keep the children in our communities safe. To educate the children within our reach about keeping themselves safe from harm when they are outside of the classroom and most vulnerable, with awareness of their cultural contexts.
