COC members were also gave skills to express the inspiration to their friends as well as communities and lead them participate in the propagated activities to change behaviors for building the safer cities for girls.

In each school’s project have two clubs (one led by girls and one led by boys) and each clubs contain 30 members. Students took part in clubs voluntarily and pledge to act for gender equality.

The clubs’ activities were maintained periodically by Plan International Vietnam and LIGHT, such as discussing the topics, project’s activities (propagated events of school), appreciating the safety in public…

Through the project, girls can learn the behaviors and skills from their experiences to get confidence and achieve their dream. Boys had opportunity to improve themselves to overcome the prejudice of the gender and the causes of gender discrimination. Members of Champions of Change clubs will become the pioneers of expanding the gender equality in their schools and communities./.
