Objective Action

The program aims to inform children, parents and teachers on Trauma Prevention in order to reduce the number of injured children. It has been proven that proper and systematic prevention can reduce the number and severity of children’s accidents up to 50%.

 

Target Audience

Children in Kindergardens, Elementary School, Parents and Teachers.

 

Duration

From 1998 until today


Description

We visit schools and talk to children, teachers and parents on how to prevent accidents from happening. Our experience has shown that 70% of the children have not heard what we are discussing in the room. For greater benefit, after the events, we hand out brochures to be read by the children, their siblings and parents. These brochures address: Safety at home, Safety at school, Prevention of burns, Safety during sports, etc.
