The United Nations Unite to End Violence against women and girls, proclaimed the 25th of each month as the ‘Orange Day’. It is a day to raise awareness and to take action against violence that victimised women and girls. The bright and optimistic orange colour, represents a future free from violence.

The teachers were dressed in orange that day. A beautiful orange flower was given to each child and teacher. It was pasted on his/her shirt or blouse. The teachers explained the significance of the Orange Day campaign to the children in their classes. Each child was given a cup of orange jelly and postcard to share what he/she has learnt with the parents and friends. They learnt the importance of breaking the silence when they witness violence against women and girls.
