|A club member explaining on sex education to fellow pupils|
At this time, we will report about Activity 2-2-3 ‘Facilitating Sex Education session by MHM peer club’ conducted in November 2018.
Three MHM clubs (8girls&4boys) were formed from 3 target schools. The purpose of these clubs was to spearhead Menstruation Hygiene Management (MHM), gender awareness and sex education by reaching out to fellow students through the child-child approach. Last time, The MHM clubs conducted MHM session (one session in each of the three schools) toward their school pupils. This time, they conducted Sex Education session, and the club members informed their peers on physical changes between boys and girls, as well as helped to built their capacities, especially for girls, to defend themselves from issues of sexual exploitation and harassment

Ø Pupils understood the body changes such as physical growth that occur in both boys and girls.
Ø Pupils knew some of danger for a person being exposed in early sexual intercourse including death, unwanted pregnancies, HIV/AIDS, and STIs (sexually transmitted infections), dropping out of school etc.
Ø Pupils were informed on some of major forms of sexual harassments that mostly occur include; molestation, rape, defilement, early and forced marriages etc.
Ø Pupils are able to report some sexual violence to relevant responsible authorities. They can now mention places where they repot sexual abuse and to whom they report including police, leaders including political, religious, technical and other opinion leaders, schools, elders, relatives among others.
Ø Pupils understood the value of education and the purpose of staying in school.
Lastly, through this activity, we believe the long-term impact will be the decrease in school dropout.
