Download Invitation

This webinar is an initiative of our Community of Practice (CoP) on Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), which is composed by representatives of Aidsfonds, Dance4Life, Edukans, KIT Royal Tropical Institute, RNW Media, Rutgers, The Hunger Project and the University of Amsterdam.

The current COVID-19-related restrictions on movement and access to services will serve as  backdrop to the discussion of alternative modes of delivery for young people in both (peri) urban and rural settings. The aim of this expert meeting is to provide a platform for exchange of information on, and experiences with, different modes of CSE delivery beyond conventional classroom or youth group settings.

Presentations to look forward to:

  • Rashid Omoro – Programme manager at Savannah Signatures will talk about CSE through broadcasting and text messaging.
  • Jenipher Mkandawire – Executive Director at Foundation for Children’s Rights (FCR) will share CSE experiences from the radio listening clubs in Malawi.
  • Abir Sarras – RNW Media Regional Manager for MENA region and co-founder of Love Matters Arabic will present on CSE in digital spaces.
  • Corazon Ayoma – Program Coordinator at Family Health Options Kenya (FHOK) will talk about CSE using Whatsapp.

Room for discussion

After the presentations, there will be time for an interactive Q&A session moderated by Esther Miedema. Following the Q&A, participants will be split into groups and invited into Zoom breakout rooms. The speakers will join a group and present a question or topic for further discussion. The meeting will close with a brief reflection on main ‘take aways’.

Expected take aways

After the event, Share-Net will produce a knowledge product to capture the main learning from this meeting. The expected result will include a mapping of inspiring CSE initiatives of Share-Net partners for in- and out-of-school youth in different (urban and rural) settings, and elaboration of challenges and good practices in providing CSE via less conventional means.
