Friends and Donors!

Our last visit to the village of Tole was on the 5th of August, 2011. The purpose of this visit was to teach the “Teenage Mothers of Tole” about the rights a Woman has through the presentation of a movie titled: “For Colored Women”—perhaps some of you have heard about it or even have the chance to enjoy watching such a wonderful and inspirational film!!! While watching the movie, explanations were given as the movie progressed. The SDI team encouraged discussion by asking questions in regards to the issues being presented. At the same time the teenage mothers clarify their doubts by raising their own concerns and opinions. Not surprisingly, conflicts among the different opinions were perceived, as each teenage mother holds a different point of view about the movie. In order to minimize this opinion gap, the SDI team decided to incline in the teaching program (Sex Education, the rights of a woman, the duties of a woman towards her family, teenage pregnancy and abortion, and the impacts of their lives in the society).

Until next time!
