The programme has been operating for a month now and so far the community health care workers have facilitated six of the twelve sessions. The 20 children who are participating are enjoying a safe space to talk about their challenges and life experiences, as well as topics like peer pressure, relationships and sex (topics that most refuse to discuss at home).
Programmes like these make all the difference in the lives of the teens who attend. Children who are able to talk about their life issues and find positive role models tend to have a healthier self esteem and make better life choices.
Thank you to all involved!
