According to GNI, at lessons on "Improving Self-Defense Capacity", children watched puppet plays so that they could easily approach to lessons on child abuse, seduction, and kidnapping. This was the first time children had learned the scientific names of sensitive body parts. In addition, swimwear rules, the three steps of self-protection, and hypothetical plays were all taught by GNI teachers to all students.

With intuitive teaching methods and clear illustrated examples, after participating in the lessons, children were able to raise their awareness of protecting their bodies. Besides, plays assuming dangerous situations were also shown so that students could practice mastering the skills they learned.

This is one of the activities under the framework of project named "Strengthening the support and protection system for disadvantaged children - Hope Letter Project".

Hope Letter Project focuses on providing services related to child abuse prevention, activities supporting children with difficulties, thereby creating a premise in advocacy and handing over effective form of prevention education for the localities.
