The initiative highlights the important issues related with bullying and provides practical ways to counter it. Buddy Network is a global program that has seen huge success across various other markets around the world.
Bullying is never something anyone should suffer with in silence. Tell someone you trust immediately - this can be a friend, a teacher, mentor or trusted adult. You are not alone and it's important to let someone know if you are being bullied or you see others being bullied.
Someone who is being bullied or who is bullying others needs a friend and support too. Create opportunites to be friendly to everyone.
Be confident in who you are and encourage your friends to stand up against bullying and take action to stop it, whether it’s happening to you or others. Talking about it doesn’t mean you are a snitch or tattletale. You’re doing something good by helping someone out.
