In September 2019, FICE Romania transmitted throughout the country the call for association to the campaign and concluded partnerships with the Ministry of National Education, the Ministry of Labor and Social Justice, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the National Anti-Drug Agency, the National Agency against Trafficking in Persons and the Ministry of Health. At regional and local level, with their decentralized structures (school inspectorates, general directions for social assistance and child protection, public health departments, county police inspectorates, county drug evaluation and counseling centers, regional centers against human trafficking, etc. ) as well as with other institutions and NGOs.
Following the conclusion of the protocol, the Ministry of National Education sent the methodological guide for carrying out the 19 Days Campaign, the registration form for the campaign, the visual materials helping to all the 41 county school inspectorates and 6 school inspectorates of the sectors of the municipality of Bucharest, their schools inspecting, information and request to participate in the campaign to all schools in the country.
Both nationally and in the localities participating in the campaign, the purpose and objectives of
the campaign were presented through the media (print media, central or local television stations, on social networks - facebook, twitter).
The themes of all 19 Days Campaign covered sexual abuse, bullying, neglect and exploitation of children, physical abuse (corporal punishment), child prostitution and child pornography, trafficking in children, traditional harmful practices, street children, substance abuse and addiction (addiction), juvenile justice, special attention being paid to November 2, November 19 (International Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse) and November 20 (International Day of Children Rights).
Direct and indirect beneficiaries of the campaign
The direct beneficiaries are students from schools, children's clubs, placement centers as well as coordinating teachers.
Indirect beneficiaries are schools, parents and local communities, who will have children with greater capacity for social integration, more protected from the destructive phenomenon of abuse and violence of any kind.
The experience gained since 2012, when FICE Romania participated for the first time in the 19
days Campaign of prevention carried out by WWSF, helped us to improve our capacities to attract new institutions, schools and local communities within the campaign.
More than 285,000 students from over 1000 schools from all the counties of Romania and Bucharest participated in the 2019 campaign (we attach the list of schools participating in the Campaign).
Also, more than 35,000 teachers, psychologists, policemen, social workers, journalists, doctors
and parents participated.
