Survey In Schools

The purpose of the survey is to measure the knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, practices and skills of the children studying in the 6 schools (established in the district central) selected for the establishment of the peace clubs.

The measurement tool used in this survey is based on two different parts, part one comprising of 11 multiple choices based questions and part two comprises of fifteen close ended questions. The idea is to verify the data that is received from the respondents. Thus, getting a clearer picture of the knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, practices and skills they currently have.

 The Baseline Survey on CVE Knowledge was designed with the intent to measure respondents’ existing knowledge about life skills and their understanding on the concepts of positive and negative peace, conflict transformation, and assertiveness. Our hypothesis was “at least 50% of respondents will be misinformed on the concepts of positive and negative peace, conflict transformation, and assertiveness.” Through data analysis it was indicated that our hypotheses was disproved; it was further revealed that the youth has an optimistic view about peace, conflict transformation, and life skills, yet they lack the necessary skills to implement their knowledge towards building a positive society and actively engage in the conflict transformation process to bring about the desired change in the society in Pakistan.
