Honda Fights Against Bullying

Everybody who was bullied in high-school, raise your hand! A bit too late for you, but just in time for the current generation, as Enough is Enough decided to make a change in the bullying issues of most kids.

Enough is Enough is a not-for-profit organization that assists anti-bullying programs throughout New South Wales. The Honda Foundation and Tynan Motors in Sidney lends a helping hand, by donating $10,000 to support these programs.

Chairman of the Honda Foundation, Lindsay Smalley, thinks that this program will have immediate and positive effect. “This program will be a valuable resource for students and teachers to develop the necessary skills to tackle the issue of bullying head-on.”

“Bullying is a serious problem in some parts of the community and can have life-long effects. Enough is Enough is being proactive in addressing these issues and the Foundation wanted to show its support,”
Smalley said.

The donation will pay for the handbooks and training presentations for the anti-bullying program, scheduled to take place at 27 secondary schools. If you ask us, the programs should first be run at kindergartens, as then is when kids first start to find their violent side.

The anti-bullying program will address to the domestic violence and its effects on families, discuss child-protection issues and help prevent children becoming victims, promote life-long learning and assist with the prevention of crime.

The Enough is Enough organization also staged an anti-bullying conference in March this year, called “Positive Solutions – anti-bullying”. The conference took place in Sidney and lasted for two days. Present at this conference were high profile community members, such as Jessica Rowe and Mike Munro, which will be filmed and featured on a DVD destined to be used in the anti-bullying program.
