Romania starts piloting their local version of Free of Bullying – Să fim prieteni
Welcome to a world free of bullying
The Mary Foundation and Save the Children Denmark launched the Free of Bullying anti-bullying programme in 2007 on the initiative of Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.
Free of Bullying is the international version of the Danish programme “Fri for Mobberi”. Launched in response to interest from other countries, Free of Bullying is now being implemented in childcare facilities and schools in Greenland, The Faroe Islands, Estonia, Iceland and Romania.
The purpose of Free of Bullying is to foster a world in which all children feel part of a community – no matter where they live.
To realise our vision, we aim to:
- share the community-based view of bullying with organisations in other countries who share our commitment to improving the lives of children;
- provide empirical information about the causes of and effective measures to prevent bullying, so that these organisations may learn from and spread this knowledge in their own countries; and
- support organisations who want to join our efforts to eradicate bullying among children through our Free of Bullying programme and Competence Centre.
If this sparks your organisation’s interest, please keep reading! And feel free to contact us directly too.
