The measures of primary prevention have a essential role in the fight against gender-based violence.

With the company Free to Be project - At school, which involved the experts of the association participating in the National group on prevention, it was chosen to act primarily in preschools, in the first grades of primary school and in education / education centers.

They are fundamental places in the life of boys and girls e one of the main contexts in which gender socialization takes place and in which stereotyped behaviors and attitudes are created, maintained and transmitted.

The project has experimented with some actions aimed at raising awareness on the subject in educators and educators, and in / in the teachers who are in daily contact with boys and girls aged 4-7 years.

With this line of intervention D.i.Re wants to promote the dissemination of educational tools through anti-violence centers for activities dedicated to an important and delicate age group for the construction of one's own identity and relationships with one another.
