‘Protecting Adolescents from Gender Based Violence through the Promotion of their Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights’ is a three-year project launched by Save the Children aimed to raise awareness and enhance protection of children and adolescents (10-17 years old) in the MENA region from gender based violence (early marriage, FGM and sexual abuse) through promoting their right to Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) in three target countries: Lebanon, the Occupied Palestinian Territory (oPt) and Yemen.
This is the English version of the toolkit in Arabic on “Children and Adolescents Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights” [Module1].
It targets trainers to work with 4 groups with exercises in order to:
- Increase awareness of the importance of sex and reproductive education for children and adolescents by linking it to the rights of the child;
- Provide the necessary knowledge for enhancing the safety and sexual and reproductive health of children and adolescents and avoid the risks that threaten their health;
- Enhance positive attitudes and sound skills relating to sexual and reproductive health among children and adolescents.
The kit is designed in the form of five application guides:
- The Information Guide, aimed to aid the facilitator;
- The Activities Guide for children age 10-13;
- The Activities Guide for adolescents age 14-17;
- The Activities Guide for parents;
- The Activities Guide for service providers.
Every guide is divided into 4 interdependent units:
- Unit One is an Introduction to Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights;
- Unit Two: “Puberty – Our Growing Bodies”;
- Unit Three: “Personal Hygiene”;
- Unit 4: “Puberty – Psychosocial changes and life skills”.
