Pens Up Canes Down Initiative: Ending Violence, Fostering Learning

Our "Pens Up Canes Down" initiative is a local movement in Sierra Leone, dedicated to prioritizing education and eliminating all forms of violence against children in learning environments. We mobilize stakeholders, inspire change, and educate on the lasting impact of violence.  

Our vision is to contribute to the realization of good and quality education by prohibiting and eliminating violence in schools, to see a world where education is free from harm, nurturing lifelong learners. We firmly believe that education should never inflict pain, and it's unequivocally unacceptable to harm a child.

Aim of the Initiative: The Pens Up Canes Down initiative seeks to engage children, parents, teachers, administrators, and all involved in the educational process
