Description : ICRC website, photo gallery “Jamaica: Education to reduce the impact of violence”, 25 October 2017
“With a view to reducing the impact of violence and increasing opportunities for a better life for young people and children in the most vulnerable sectors of society, the ICRC is supporting the Jamaica Red Cross in its efforts to facilitate their access to education through the two schools it runs.
This initiative, known as the School of Transformation, includes a sports and psychosocial component – the RIV (reducing the impact of violence) project – aimed at providing a more comprehensive response to meet the needs of young people who have dropped out of the education system and have difficulties entering the labour market.”
