UNESCO commissioned this desk review to inform the adaptation, trial and delivery of the prevention education resource Connect with Respect: Preventing gender-based violence within schools (CWR) within the East and Southern Africa region (ESA). The CWR resource guides teachers in providing gender-based violence-prevention education for secondary school students. It was initially developed for UNESCO Asia and Pacific. Connect with Respect (2016) is a research-informed education resource which teaches the communication skills for respectful gender relationships. It provides learning activities about gender and equality, the effects of gender-based violence, positive gender role models, peer support skills for people who witness violence, and help-seeking skills for those who experience violence.
