Learn Without Fear
Cruel and humiliating forms of psychological punishment, gender-based violence and bullying remain a daily reality for millions of children. Every child has the right to a safe school environment. Plan's Learn Without Fear campaign aims to end violence against children in all schools.

Global targetsPlan's vision is of a world where children can go to school in safety and expect a quality learning experience without fear or threats of violence. Learn Without Fear targets three of the most common and damaging forms of violence in schools: sexual violence, bullying and corporal punishment.
The campaign will be truly global in scale and places special focus on the 50 developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America in which Plan works.
Our goalsKey aims of the campaign include:
- Persuading governments to outlaw all forms of violence against children in school, and to enforce those laws.
- Working with school leaders and teachers to create violence-free schools and promote alternative discipline methods to corporal punishment.
- Creating a global momentum for change, including increased resources from international donors and governments to tackle violence in schools in developing countries.
Join our campaign and help us to influence governments, teachers, parents and others to prevent violence and protect children at school.
