I am a senior pastor of a christian church and invove in youth sex education for almost 8 years. Throughout these years of facilitating to youth in schools and community, I discovered that they need a real fact of understanding in gender/sex development, helping them to grow in dignity, self-awareness and relational identity. 5 years ago, I have started up a compaign called "FLY", providing gender/sex eduction workshop mainly for primary 5 and 6 students, secondary to lower form of secondary students. This is so important for these youth more than I because of the confusion of true sexuality knowledge and understanding had made them deviated from healthy purberty developemnt. Many youth had a distorted value in mutual gender relationship, self-abuse, schools bullies, harrassment, and sexual behavior. Below are some information to share with you:
What is Sexuality Education?
Sexuality education is a lifelong process of acquiring information and forming attitudes, beliefs, and values about such important topics as identity, relationships, and intimacy. It addresses the socio-cultural, biological, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of sexuality by providing information; exploring feelings, values, and attitudes;
and developing communication, decision-making, and critical-thinking skills. Sexuality Education should include parents and teachers, for the rightful sexuality education will grow our youth in body, mind and soul.
Facilitating and share holistic concept of relationship and gender education among primary and secondary schools through games and workshop, ensuring our youth to progress with healthy, safety and fulfilling time in their age of puberty.
