we emphasized the following points: first of all the introduction of issues regarding the female sex anatomy which can interfere during the teenage years or the puberty age, the menstrual period : definition; signs and of course how to hadle the case, after that we took a look at the body hygiene out of the menstrual period underlining : nails hygiene, underwears hygiene, bath etc. we also said some important changes observed during the teenage period like: some physical changes, psychological changes and socio cultural changes
After our explanation and all, we got some challenges from them saying how much they are missing several important things like: permanent clean water and parents are not able to pay for them tools( bassins, buckets etc. ) Mulezi w’ Abana girls really wished to have a regular sensibilisation, to get some other awereness topic from their school leaders but also they want their parent to be sensitized on the issues.
