In June, workshops with young people were held on the topic "Bullying - Violence among teenagers." Meaning of bullying was new for many people, however, after clarification, participants of the meeting in Senaki, Kutaisi and Khoni remembered - that often the subject of ridicule is hairstyle, clothes, red hair, glasses ...
Workshops were not ended with a discussion of specific examples. Young people talked about the reasons that contribute to aggression among teenagers. They drew a parallel with family conflict. It was said that children from hard families often laugh at others, or vice versa - are victims of violence.
The conversation was followed by searching for the ways out: a greater awareness of young people, more communication with parents and teachers, talk with psychologist.
The project is implemented with the support of the organization Brot
