Project Summary:

 
The main motivation in this project is to combat and prevent Bullying by taking it into agenda with its all aspect. The partners of the project have more or less serious problems of bullying in their school environment .Due to the project we have already searched  the theme scientifically , negotiate the best and simply applicable solution in the schools and decided the methodology to be applied to combat and prevent the Bullying in our institutions. There will be two sides of our project; at first side teachers and parents will be the beneficiary, at second students will be main actors of the activities. Seminars and meetings will be organized for teachers and parents for improving the motivation on the theme and the ways to overcome Bullying theoretically. Project main activities will be hold for students from beginning to end.
School bullying refers to all types of bullying done on school property, whether it is peer-to-peer bullying, bullying of younger children by older children, or bullying in which a teacher is either a victim or a culprit. 
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly a third of all students aged 12-18 reported having been bullied at school in recent years, some almost daily. This article gives a general background on school bullying. 
The main reasons for violence in school age children are:
1-Low self-esteem, 2-Difficulty in trusting others, 3-Lack of assertiveness, 4-Aggression , 5-Difficulty controlling anger , 6-Isolation. 
We collected all the reasons in one point. It is social acceptance. We focused on how to develop our students social acceptance. 
Our basic aim is to provide an activity for every single student in school and peer environment apart from ordinary school programme. Academic success, school sport facilities or other artistic and musical facilities only include very less number of students. We have to include everyone in a way that everybody will be able to show an ability to improve his/her self-esteem, self-confidence so feel acceptance in social life. We knew from out experiences that anyone who join and perform something to the peers, become different from earlier. 
Our project has activity plan apart from school programme for every student. The activities will be; sports, arts, handicrafts, music, dance, photographs, games, food nature(planting trees,being member in associations about saving nature and joining their activities,etc.).
With this move, our project will overcome the reasons of bullying: Low self-esteem, Difficulty in trusting others, Lack of assertiveness, Aggression , Difficulty controlling anger  and Isolation.
