This project is aimed to promote children’s emotive-sexual well-being. The purpose is to furnish the appropriate knowledge to the children’s caregivers in the nursery and primary school through a programme increasing the consciousness of one’s body and promoting personal security. The interactive method facilitated the dialogue among the actors involved in the programme, their awareness and the activation of protective responses in the context of the child’s life. The project was developed in 4 years and the results of this research refer to the second year of accomplishment. The project is that the trained teachers lead other groups of teachers, increasing the knowledge and use of the programme in the school activities, in order to promote a culture caring for the children’s needs.

Keywords: Primary prevention, abuse, school, empowerment.
