Freedom Charity Education Package
Freedom Charity offers an outstanding educational package, which includes: safeguarding training for teachers and staff, on issues such as preventing radicalisation and dishonour abuse, as well as access to PSHE Association accredited lesson plans on Forced Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation; assemblies and workshops on all dishonour abuse delivered by Freedom Charity’s founder, Aneeta Prem; copies of Aneeta’s book, ‘But It’s Not Fair’, for every student; and a structured ambassador scheme for motivated pupils.
Assemblies and Workshops
To date, Freedom Charity has worked with over 100 schools in the UK and has donated tens of thousands of copies of Aneeta Prem’s novel, ‘But It’s Not Fair’, to students and education professionals. Aneeta’s innovative and expert presentations, combined with the novel and PSHE lesson plans, provide students across all Key Stages with the knowledge to engage with, and discuss, complex human rights issues. Aneeta’s school visits are acknowledged as being vital in combatting violent crimes, dishonour-based violence and forced marriage. Many leading professionals, including Nicky Morgan MP, Secretary of State for Education and Di Harrill, Head of PSHE, have attended the school sessions and highly recommend them to your school.
Teacher and Safeguarding Training
Aneeta and her team deliver tailored safeguarding training for the police, judiciary, educational establishments, the NHS and social services. Our safeguarding training, specifically developed for educationalists, includes workshops on:
- Violent and dishonour-based crimes: what to look for and how to spot the signs;
- How to support and protect young people at risk:
- Educating and supporting young people about forced marriage, FGM and dishonour-based violence;
As part of our training programme, we also provide lesson plans on both forced marriage and FGM.
Our latest initiative is the recently developed Ambassador Scheme. This structured programme is aimed at highly motivated students and has two principal targets:
Freedom Charity and the work we undertake.
To raise funds, which will enable the charity to increase its outreach programmes.
Student Ambassadors are encouraged to raise awareness, in their school and community, of violent crime, dishonour-based violence and forced marriage. We also hope that Student Ambassadors will be inspired to fundraise for the charity so that it can continue its vital work. Highly motivated Ambassadors, from across the UK, will be invited to attend a Freedom Charity Ambassador Training Day to further develop their awareness of our work and to discuss future fundraising initiatives.
