Adolescents SRHR class, Inwa Myanmar Music School, Mandalay.
Two training took place in Kayah and Kachin states. Participants received basic sexuality training and get peer educator training that allow them to teach youth and adults about sexuality. After the training, they are independent, and they manage and organise trainings on their own, depending on their community’s needs.
We teach adolescents, teachers, parents and care givers about adolescents’ sexuality. We alternate between specific group discussions among these beneficiaries and open discussions where everyone gets together.
How to start a discussion with your kids? What are the red flags when it comes to children’s sexual behaviours? These are the issues we address with parents, teachers, care givers, counsellors and try to identify how to educate children about sexuality.
During this introduction, we talk about the scope of sexuality. We mainly focus on the questions that participants want to ask. It really depends on participants’ preference. We take the most holistic approach we can, which is mandatory to be as inclusive as possible.
The training is mainly based on the curriculum which is adapted to the Burmese context by referencing UN, WHO guidelines and other online resources. The themes we discuss here are sexual reproductive health, rights, consent, sexual anatomy, relationships, family planning and many more.
