Personal Safety Education is a school-based curriculum that empowers children to participate in their own protection. The three integral components of the methodology are providing age-appropriate information, developing assertiveness and decision making skills and promoting self-esteem to translate learning into practice. Besides, it strengthens the capacities of those professionally, socially and morally responsible for the protection of children, that is, the government, parents, schools, and the larger community.
