New Life Skills Students
Thank you to all our generous donors so far! This is our first report on our sexual education project. And we can start this report on a high note:
Our first two Life Skills classes at Salariin Kampuchea have graduated! All 18 students passed, gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience on the course. A great achievement for both the students and the school.
During the last months of Life Skills class an educational program about sexuality and relationshipswas taught.
Students’ responses were very positive. Chan Daroith: “This program is very important for me as youth, I learned to understand about the character and feelings of young adults. I have changed a lot and take care of myself more now”.
By communicating with their classmates, students learn to talk about their feelings and needs,and are able to understand the feelings and needs of others.
The funds received so far have not been spent yet. We are proud to announce to you the next steps of our Sexual Education Project:
A number of the graduates spent some time informing our current students about the Life Skills program. Through their positive experiences they have encouraged 31 students to register for the new classes.
In July two new classes will start with the course. For the third week of August the Sexual Education Workshops are planned to be run by expert trainers.
Why did Ut Som register for the class? “I want to learn new things, the differences between men and women and learn to understand the society around me”.
Lai Lam says: “I want to learn about the problems in society and how to solve them. How can I communicate with my friends, my family and build healthy relationships between boyfriend and girlfriend.”
Thanks to your kind donations we are able to run the first workshops. Still, there is much to be done to reach our project target. We would appreciate it if you can continue to support our initiative. We will keep you updated with news about our young adults’ progress and the upcoming workshops.
