The confidence and responses given by the group leaders showed that the children were attentive, and had understood what the session was all about. It was a very educative session.
They were engaged in a session about sex education. They were split up in groups where they discussed about relationships, premarital sex and puberty. The group leaders later represented their friends and shared what they had discussed. The children made wonderful presentations where they engaged their friends. Nisslous Sumba (Wells of Hope Junior School nurse) and Robert Settaba from Semutto Health Centre) facilitated the sessions; they supplemented what the children had presented about. They talked about signs of pregnancy, signs of puberty in girls and boys, Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Sexually Transmitted Infections.
Friday 16th, September, was the last day of the camp. The children had guest facilitators from Rotatact Club of Kampala East (in partnership with Pear Generation), who facilitated about career guidance. Every visitor had the opportunity of addressing the children.
During the camp, the children were engaged in a talent show, where they entertained their friends in mimes, dances and modeling. The children were also involved in other activities like peeling, fetching water, baking and cleaning.
