In 2020, Save the Children, with the support of the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), conceived the Vanuatu Seif Skuls Project which aims to ensure the safety of children in Vanuatu and to protect them from the constant threats of natural hazards, violence (i.e., corporal punishment, gender-based violence, bullying, etc.) and other everyday risks in and around their schools or learning environment.
This five-year Seif Skuls Project envisions that “by 2025, all children in Vanuatu are better protected from violence, climate risks, disasters, and other everyday hazards including the COVID-19 pandemic, when in and around schools”.
