Because adolescence is often a difficult and confusing time for a child, it is essential that they have access to both accurate and straight-forward information about puberty and reproductive health as well as counseling when personal questions might arise.
Therefore, this component of the intervention involves the implementation of a rights-based reproductive health curriculum as well as one-on-one counseling services to boys and girls for two hours per week. The curriculum was developed by Institute for Reproductive Health for young adolescents and is currently used in developing nations around the world. Also, private counseling is provided to students who wish to discuss issues related to puberty, reproductive health, and/or abuse.
Services are provided by trained Adolescent Health Assistants who all have healthcare and/or counseling backgrounds.
