Don Bosco TVETs in Uganda Rollout PSHEA Policy

Don Bosco Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions in Uganda recently rolled out the Prevention of Sexual Harassment, Exploitation and Abuse (PSHEA) Policy as part of the Gender Matters for Green TVET Programme.

The rollout took place between February 19th and 24th, 2024, at three Don Bosco TVET centers: Don Bosco VTC Bombo (February 19th-20th), Don Bosco VTC Palabek (February 23rd-24th), and St. Joseph VTC Kamuli (February 2nd)

The PSHEA policy aims to create a safe and secure learning environment for all students and staff, regardless of gender or age. Through workshops and presentations, the rollout aimed to:

  • Sensitize students, staff and management about PSHEA and its importance.
  • Facilitate understanding of the PSHEA Code of Conduct.
  • Encourage commitment to preventing and addressing sexual harassment, exploitation, and abuse.

By the end of the rollout, all stakeholders at the participating Don Bosco TVET institutions signed the PSHEA Code of Conduct, demonstrating their commitment to fostering a safe and inclusive learning environment.

The successful implementation of this initiative was made possible with the financial support of development partners Jugend Eine Welt and Austrian Development Cooperation. The PSHEA policy rollout is part of the broader Gender Matters for Green TVET program, a four-year initiative (2023-2026) implemented in five Don Bosco TVET centers across Uganda and Rwanda.
