Strong Schools and Communities Initiative: Working Together to Build Safe Schools and Protective Learning Environments

In partnership with UNICEF and A World at School, the new Strong Schools and Communities Initiative will explore opportunities for school communities, national authorities, and the private sector to strengthen programs that protect learning environments and promote an open dialogue among communities throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. This report documents the plight of school children in the region, home to the highest rate of armed violence in the world, and identifies how the initiative will inform policies and programs that the government can utilize to create safe schools.
