Investing in the future of today’s young people!
Many young people receive a range of scientifically incorrect, conflicting and confusing messages about reproductive health, sexuality and gender on a daily basis. This can lead to serious risks for their health, well-being and dignity. Age appropriate Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) gives young people the tools they need to have healthy lives and relationships. It helps them navigate life-changing decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. It provides crucial information about their bodies and their rights. CSE teaches them the life skills they need to protect and empower themselves.
When young people are supported to become critical thinkers, informed about their sexual and reproductive choices, the positive impact is felt across society.
Three day, CSE training programmes were held for:
- Students of Dharussalam Arabic College, Thiyawettavan on 20th - 22nd of January, 2020, conducted by the Batticaloa Service Delivery Point.
- Members of the National Youth Corps - Attanagalla on 5th – 7th of February 2020, conducted by the Wathupitiwala Service Delivery Point.
