Accord conducts School Outreach Programme in Olu Model and Calvary secondary Schools Portharcourt Rivers state

The Development Advocacy and Gender department of Accord for Community Development conducted two school outreach programmes in Olu Model Primary and Secondary School and Calvary Primary and Secondary school both in portharcourt Rivers state on 25th October and 10th November 2017 respectively.

The outreach programme was implemented with a focus on providing in-school adolescents and young people with information on comprehensive sexuality education including WASH and MHM (Menstrual Hygiene Management). The programme proceeded from implementation of Accord’s new facilitator’s guide that has eight (8) topics modelled for schools. The outreach was interactive one and the students were attentive and gave amazing answers to the questions posed to them. The Gender department boldly displayed their methodology which is streamlined to meet the goal of the programme. It was an awesome experience and time with these young ones who showed prowess and initiatives in the various questions that threw to the facilitators. The message delivered was on how to manage personal hygiene during menstruation and setting life goals that are SMART and attainable. This message was necessary given that most of our young ones today rarely get much attention at home or from parents when it comes to their personal life or intimacy. The Gender team explained that the programme was designed for schools and hopefully could be adopted into school curriculums as a way of facilitating life skills and health education for young ones in Nigerian schools. Below are some of the picture clips taken during the programmes.
