PHOTO REPORTMambote Primary School’s student club, created last year with the goal of promoting equality between boys and girls, aimed towards togetherness, and bringing the students to raise awareness within their families and friends about gender questions.

A change of behavior both at school and at home

“The majority of school fights implicated boys against girls. Often times, boys would make fun of girls and thus it yielded disputes. Since they became more aware about mutual respect and were encouraged to participate in activities together, there are less fights.”
