Brief Description


In 2018, the Bureau of Gender Affairs collaborated with the Barbados Association of Guidance Counsellors, the Barbados Association of Professional Social Workers and women NGOs to sensitise fourth formers of a secondary school about domestic violence and to assist students who might be involved in such relationships. This initiative developed out of a concern raised by the guidance counsellor of the school.
