Study: Large-scale field surveys to understand the atypical phenomenon in certain communities

Studying and clarifying ancestral cultural phenomena

The project

The project consists of a survey to examine harmful traditional, cultural and religious practices in schools. The aim is to understand the impact of these practices on students, and to propose measures to prevent and eliminate them. The survey aims to raise awareness of these issues among educators, parents and policy-makers, and to promote an inclusive, safe and respectful school environment for all students, regardless of their cultural or religious background.

Cayambe was commissioned to carry out these surveys.
