Keep Me Safe: European Partnership
The Cypriot Ministry of Education intends to develop policy on the issue of the sexual resilience of young people with a learning disability. Various parties in Cyprus are currently engaged in debate on the matter. This is one of the results of Keep Me Safe, a European exchange project in which Rutgers has been participating for the past two years. Its objective was to empower young Europeans with a learning disability to protect themselves against sexual abuse and violence. In addition, however, it was designed to assist their environment, including parents, institutions and schools, in offering these vulnerable young people support in this area.
