The Doorways training program was designed by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Safe Schools Program (Safe Schools) to enable teachers, community members and students to prevent and respond to school related gender-based violence (SRGBV).1 Violence in and around schools is a worldwide problem with serious implications for the educational attainment, health and well-being of all children.2 The physical, sexual and psychological abuse suffered by both girls and boys at the hands of teachers, classmates and others drives children out of school and can leave long-lasting scars invisible to the eye.
