Follow-up workshop on sexual education
Thanks to your generous donations, the students who participated in our Sexual Education Workshop have graduated! Read on to find out more about the positive experiences of those involved.
In our last update, we told you about the serious issues which face Cambodian’s in their domestic life and the problems which arise as a result. In August you saw us taking the first step in providing our students with a comprehensive sexual education programme that is empowering them to make informed choices and foster positive relationships. Funds raised through Global Giving were used to stage the follow up workshop from Karol & Setha with our students in October.
In the workshop, students were asked to consider their learning and its effect on their lives so far, and in the future. All our Life Skills students graduated successfully, receiving a certificate from Karol & Setha. Student, Hun Pitou, tells us about her experiences in the follow-up workshop: “I reviewed and did some tests. I also played games, and sang. I worked in a team and painted a picture which represents our dream. Then we showed the picture to the team and spoke about it. We helped each other to solve the problems that our team had with their families, with friends or other people. We learnt 23 points that we need to make an agreement with our partner before and after we get married. Finally, I got a certificate from Karol & Setha”. Pitou said, “I am very interested in this workshop because it helped me know more about my life and I learned about my friends’ feelings. I will apply it in my life. I hope that we will get the opportunity to join the second workshop because I want to learn more”.
Next year, we would like to conduct the workshop again with our new Life Skill students. The workshop is a small step in educating young Cambodians in creating sustainable relationships within their lives. We are very proud to have provided this workshop, and we would like to thank all donors who supported us though GlobalGiving. With the help of our partners at GlobalGiving, Karol & Setha, and you, we hope to keep building on this and moving forward with our personal and social education programme.
