The goal of this project is to install the „Karonga Youth Center for Information on Reproductive
Health“ (KYC) at the St. Mary’s Girls Primary School in Karonga. The projected organizational
structure of the „Karonga Youth Center for Information on Reproductive Health“ allows a sustainable
and effective work in the field of „Reproductive Health" . This will be realizedby qualifying selected teachers in the field of „Reproductive Health“, that they can work as multipicators which transfer their onw knowledge to a „peer-group“, consisting of 2 to 3 teachres and5 to 6 students. Moreover, it is planned to integrate selected parents into this peer-group. The main mission of this peer-group will be: - + to establish „reproductive health“ within the curriculum of the school as well as all the correlated themes as sexual edutation, contraception, family planning, women rights, HIV-prophylaxis
+ to build up an organizational structure which allows to continue this subject sustainably even after the end of this project
+ to guarentee the preservation of the peer-group on a long termscale by a proper selection, education and integration of new teachers and students.
