도움이 필요한 곳에 이웃의 사랑을 전하는 굿네이버스

Based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), Good Neighbors runs social development education programs on children’s rights, global citizenship, pre-parenting and peace, depending on the different developmental stages of children from preschool to high school. We also offer comprehensive educational programs for parents and teachers. For the growth and sustainable operation of the social development education programs, we organize and engage university student volunteer groups in addition to a network of expert advisors on children and education, who enable active management of the projects.

Children’s Rights Education

Puppet Show

Through child sexual abuse prevention education, we help children recognize and prepare for potential sexual abuse situations. We offer children who have experienced sexual abuse an environment without abuse so they can receive protection. Our efforts protect children from the dangers of sexual abuse and foster their growth and development into healthy adults.

Participatory Activity for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment aims to prevent child abuse of primary school children through interactive programs that include self-defense programs for school children, parenting classes for parents and education on the obligation to report for teachers. PAPCM takes a comprehensive approach toward raising the awareness of the need for prevention of child abuse by encouraging children, parents and teachers to actively promote these campaigns in the community.

Global Citizenship Education

Global citizenship education allows children, the leaders of the future generation, to understand the lives of those suffering from war, poverty, disease, and to respect their human rights. The program encourages participants to live a life of giving, transcending the borders of race, religion, and ideology. Through the program, we ultimately hope to raise global citizens who embrace the world and practice active neighborly love.

Preparatory Parenting Education

One of the most significant factors of child abuse is the parents’ lack of parenting skills. Preparatory parenting education is urgently needed to stop damaging parenting practices from being passed down, to heal wounds made by parents before becoming a parent themselves, and to teach correct parenting skills. Preparatory parenting education helps parents acquire healthy ways of thinking and acting while parenting by increasing their understanding and knowledge of children before they are born. Moreover, it aims to help students become parents qualified to raise children in the future, and to instill a sense of concern and responsibility for all children with in the community.

It helps form a healthy understanding of children and promotes realization of the importance of parenting, leading to healthy nurturing for children.

Peace Education

The purpose of peace education is to allow today’s youth to realize the devastating effects of conflict and dispute, and to help them cultivate and value world peace. Middle school students become the principal agents of realizing peace by forming groups and discussing one issue every month (disputes, violence, reconciliation or cooperation), and participating in activities and campaigns related to the issue.
