In coordination with Sahaayam Nepal, we organized the Comprehensive sexuality education under one of our project Health Classes, for the students from grade 7 to 10 at 2 different schools. We first had students representatives trained who later delivered the curriculum to their mates. It was more of breaking the boundaries of shyness and conserved thoughts so that the knowledge gets deeper and better. The feedback coming from the schools and students along with the peer educators was worth the investment of time and resources. It not just built the confidence of standing as a presenter but also creating a space to talk about adolescence, sex, reproductive health, contraceptives, harassment etc amidst their friends and teachers. We aim to provide the platform for the students to talk about their issues and the ways to cope up at such times.
Lastly, we would like to express our gratitude to the trainers from Sahaayam Nepal, Shree Panchakanya school, and Balbikas boarding high school and all the students for the cooperation. Thanks to our supporters too.
