Our objective is to help youth better understand the risks and consequences of premarital sex and at the same time, empower them with responsibility and knowledge to make wise choices:
- Raise awareness among teens about baby dumping issues, on ways to prevent unwanted pregnancies and how they can avoid sexually transmitted disease (STD).
- Raise awareness that parents need to proactively engage teenage children on issues of sexual health and reproduction including sexual relationships, STD and the consequences of baby dumping.
The programme targets 18-23 year olds and their parents. Activities include:
- Conducting awareness programmes for students and educators at local colleges and in low-cost housing communities
- Group activities to encourage better understanding of social issues among teenagers
Calling for volunteers and then ‘Training the Trainers” to lead this paradigm shift
