SRH, MHM & GBV session at God Agak primary school
SEP SRH staff and volunteers visited God Agak primary school, Homabay county, with the aim of imparting knowledge and awareness on different societal issues that affect young adolescent girls.
During the sessions, we taught the girls about the changes that occur in their bodies during puberty.
Menstrual health and hygiene is an integral part of these sessions and we taught them about the menstruation process, how to maintain hygiene during their menses, and how to use, dispose and take care of their disposable and reusable sanitary pads.
As advocates of abstinence for young girls, we enlightened the girls on risks of engaging in early unprotected intercourse, which included contracting HIV/AIDS, STIs & STDs, early pregnancies among others.
Gender based violence, for instance rape, was also discussed. We discussed how to avoid risky situations and how to handle such situations incase they happen to any of them.
Our sessions ended with the team donating the #Sulwe_Reusable_Pads to the girls .
