Ana Tettner works with City of Chacao

Ana Tettner features the Hands Project in her book as an effective tool in abuse/violence prevention education. She worked with the city of Chacao to open its doors to prevent abuse/violence and to implement the Hands Project. Ana went to all the schools and teachers, psychologists, speech therapists, police officers, district attorney and members of the unit who respond to victims of domestic violence. She presented at workshops that were designed for a whole day in each school. Participants decided on which program they felt was better for their own class or school. The majority choose the Hands Project because it is easy, not expensive, and does not require a lot of work to implement. As of October 1, 2006 students (elementary through high school) and staff take the Pledge daily as a way of “vaccinating” their students against violence. Abuse/violence prevention education for the country of Venezuela is a pioneering effort that the Hands Project is very proud to be involved in.
