Twogere Girls’ Club, a Suubi Reproductive Health Project department, conducted a 5 days seminar from 7th – 11th December 2013 with members of the girls club in Budondo – Uganda. The major areas covered were; learning how to make re-usable sanitary pads, using theater and/or puppetry as a tool of communication, sewing of hand bags through recycling polyethene bags and threads and training in adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights. The seminar was possible through the support of Deni Drinkwater, a teacher from Chicago public Schools who also worked with these girls for 3 weeks in mask and puppet making alongside health talks in the areas of sexual and reproductive health.
Below is a photo during a group work and the seminar report.

The Government Inspector play by Gogol N. is a play about greed and Corruption. Our idea emerged under a mango tree in Budondo, Uganda during a workshop within the network Intercultural Entrepreneurship for sustainable development. Facebook group link: http://www.facebook.com/groups/336349629737716/505845052788172/?notif_t=group_activity
Now there are over twenty groups that will play the play The Government Inspector. Doing so we will share the process of working with the play with amongst other means some filmed material from each group. We will also try to stimulate local discussions on corruption and economical sustainability. Hopefully a lot of new threads will come out of this. Each group are to add material here on this blog at the latest the 14th of May, then we have a week to look at all the material and chose what are topics that we would like to further is, then on the 21-22 of May we have an Open Space session on blog: http://gogoltalk.wordpress.com/ – Ase
You are indeed all welcome 🙂

I was thinking of along side having the training for Suubi women, could also have girls trained in Peer Education. I’ve just finished my training in Peer Education and Bsc Public Health as well. We could afterwords have peer educators in schools around us (project area).
We shall see how it will all go… its just an idea.
