At schools, children are always at risk of receiving more harm than others during disasters. 

During 2005 earthquake in Pakistan, 18000 children died and thousands more are injured while attending their schools. Thousands more have suffered because of torrential rains and floods in the past four years.

Research suggests that most risks faced by children at schools are caused by decisions taken by elders including their parents, teachers and government officials.  Communication can play an important role in addressing these risks by bridging information, skills and motivational gaps.

That is why, PCDC has designed this training workshop to engage all stakeholders and sensitize them about safety and security concerns of children at schools.

The training aims to enhance understanding and capacities of parents, teachers, community leaders and government officials to identify risks and hazards to children at education institutions; and develop plans to deal effectively with them.

Additionally, the training enhances coordination between various actors in the community to improve situation of child safety at schools and take more actions for the future.

This training is effective to unite and raise awareness on hazards, disaster risk, emergency preparedness and response planning at the community level.

It can increase commitment and concerted actions for local or school based disaster-risk reduction strategies.

During the training, participants identify various risk reduction measures that can be undertaken for fire, rains, floods, landslides, earthquake and tsunami.
