Girls AcquireSkills

Reproductive Health training has been for a long time been very secretive and both boys and girls do not receive correct and adequate information regarding their adolescence stage.
This training offered close and candid discussion among the participants and their trainers. Straight talk approaches was employed to help break the culture of silence among the girls and boys.
Judging from responses from the participants there is need for both parents and teachers to strengthen their relationships with the children in order to help them during this transition period of adolescence.

We noted that most girls and boys go through the stage without guidance therefore ending up seeking help from wrong sources which eventually exposes them to dangers like pregnancy and drug addiction.
In order to achieve further positive results and sustain the information sharing, TYSA should endeavor to trainer Peer Educators to support the children through their adolescence and post adolescence stages

MY EXPERIENCE AS COMPUTER TEACHER AT ST TERESA’S SECONDARY SCHOOL. MR.LUCAS

Having got trained computer at TYSA am now able to teach in a secondary school as a teacher of computer at St Teresa’s Secondary school, Sinyereri.The knowledge and the skills that I got from TYSA I am now helping other people in school where I schooled for four years in high school.It is a great opportunity since am now giving back to my school.It was like a surprise when I was told if I can able to teach computer lesson in the school.I didn’t believe it myself but later I noticed that I have the capacity and knowledge to do it.I didn’t hesitate to say “YES” because it was my chance to show that I can make it.

I started teaching all students in school computer lessons last year November 2013.It was a challenge to me since the school had only 5 deskstop computers which is shared with 250 students with a small room.I had to plan myself properly on how I can make sure all students atleast get to access computer and learn something.I formed different groups per classes so that they come in different shift according to the timetable.The system worked well but later it failed to due the collaspe of the computers.I had to reduce classes for teaching them computer.I started teaching from form one to form two.The classes are now going on well but still the major challenge is insuffiecient computers.

The students are much willing to learn computer lesson and have the basic knowledge of computer.However they don’t access computer all as they should be.Five computers are very fewer to serve a class of 40 students.As a teacher I try as much as I can to make atleast everybody for a week is able to operate a computer.Also the computer are not in such good condition too.Their is more in the school to provide enough computers for the betterment of computer lessons to be more successful in school. In general, as a teacher am more challenged to be a teacher in such a school.

The school needs a lot support to meet their curriculm needs.Therefore am ready to give my support to the school and hope that they get more computers to make learning good.Having taught for only 4 months in school I can say it has really motivated me to support the program of computers in the school.
