Four weeks ago a "Sexual Education Programme" started in the schools of Guabuliga. Every class from Primary four to Primary six and from Junior High School one to Junior High School three has now one lesson a week about reproductive health and sexual education.

The programme was founded by the NGO Youth Harvest Foundation Ghana (YHFG), a cooperation partner of BRAVEAURORA. YHFG is based in the North of Ghana in Bolgatanga and is doing a lot of great projects. This programme includes various modules with topics like menstruation and wet dreams, HIV and STD's (=sexual transmitted deseases), relationship and sex, the correct use of condoms etc. The programme is very interactive and the kids get the opportunity to talk about their own experiences and get to know their own body better. The aim of the programme is not to ban sex from the live of the youth, but to make them aware that there can be a consequence if they are not carefull.
