Purpose

To teach sex education with teens in vulnerable areas that have high pregnancy rates among its youths. With the aim to promote abstinence as a choice.


Overview

We have organized 3 classes so far with a total reach of around 100 teens we are organising 2 more workshops in November to reach our target of 150 teens who will then be ambassadors of their knowledge and will in turn share with their friends.


Results

We received positive feedback from the teens who followed the workshop saying to us, that now that can confidently take their sexuality in hand and handle it with great care. we believe the few children we are impacting today will make a greater impact among their friends at school or in their surroundings. Its a baby step towards solving teenage pregnancy in Mauritius! This will be an ongoing project and we are planning to reach more than 2000 teens by the end of 2019.
