A baseline survey was carried out in the three districts to establish the level of knowledge and perceptions among the stakeholders. The findings clearly indicated that awareness on acts of violence was largely raised as almost all children (93%) and teachers (97%) in all the targeted schools had a good understanding of the different acts of violence as shown in figure 4 below.

Figure 4:              Pupils/students awareness on acts of violence.


The awareness on the violent acts among the different stakeholders also includes knowing where to report these cases of violence. At school level, the findings indicated that these cases are reported to different levels structures

However, 31% of girls and boys in the 3 project districts of Kasese, Ntoroko and Bundibugyo rarely report violence during school. For those who report such cases, a combination of factors influences the reporting and where to report to. The students did not report to be reporting these cases to the teachers perhaps because of the relationship between the teachers and the students.
