‘Watch your words’: Anti-bullying campaign sets stage for violence-free schools

The Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWC) launched an initiative entitled “watch your words”, targeting children, adolescents, and adults, to combat bullying.

The primary role of the initiative is to provide the necessary assistance to victims and perpetrators of bullying in a way that guarantees social harmony for both parties,” she said

Sheikha Saeed Al Mansouri added the campaign focuses on social, psychological, and legal repercussions of bullying behaviour.

The launch of this initiative is consistent with the Foundation’s strategies and objectives to develop and consolidate child-friendly practices and standards, by raising awareness among the target groups – in addition to strengthening the Emirati leadership in caring for children and guaranteeing their full rights.
