More Sexual and Reproductive Health Talks

More Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights #SRHR dialogues with our girls in schools. At Wadzanayi Primary and Secondary school in Shamva the girls proved to have information on most of the issues like menstrual hygiene and all forms of child abuse. The girls shared challenges on issues of harmful cultural beliefs – Chiramu and drug and substance abuse. Thank you AmplifyChange for funding our work and allowing us to foster and encourage dialogues on the multifaceted nature of SRHR.

SRHR Dialogue in Shamva

We continue to share experiences form our Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights dialogues – this time from Madziwa Mine Primary and Secondary schools in Shamva. We spoke about child rights and responsibilities, and about SRHR nuances with students from a range of ages and backgrounds. Our facilitators from the School District Office engaged learners in an exercise to identify their rights and responsibilities as well. As FAWEZI we led the conversations into more details of SRHR. Most questions raised from the Primary and Secondary children revolved around sexual abuse and menstrual hygiene management. Lack of sanitary wear , inadequate ablution facilities, and the ‘cloak of silence’ around menstruation issues at home, were the major challenges raised by girls.
