Ivan from Plovdiv: ‘I received answers to many questions I had before our first training. Now I hope to learn more new useful things.’
The second part of the peer to peer training of trainers of the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) and Loveguide took place on 10 and 11 February 2017 in Sofia. Highly motivated pupils from Sofia, Pleven, Ruse, Vratza, Yambol, Plovdiv, Stara Zagora and Pernik got together again, willing to acquire new knowledge on topics that are important for the wellbeing in everyone’s life. This time the presentations and exercises were on interactive techniques, team building, gender, trafficking for sexual and labor exploitation, violence in intimate relationships, and critical and analytical approach towards media and other sources of information.

Work groupOn top of the opportunity to learn new interesting and important things, during the second day the participants presented their own sessions on topics: ‘Sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS’, ‘Drugs’, Internet addiction’, ‘Puberty’, ‘Eating disorders’ “Contraception”.
The team that conducted the training: Dr. Radosveta Stamenkova, Daniela Dikova, Pavlina Filipova, Ralitsa Zgalevska, Ventzislav Kirkov, Boyan Mladenov from BFPA ; Nikoleta Popkostadinova from Loveguide, Polina Paunova from Mediapool, Nadejda Dermendjieva and Gergana Kutzeva from Bulgarian Fund for Women. The topic on responsible driving was presented by Radina Vasileva and Vasil Nikolov.
In the feedback given by the participants after the two day interactive event the topics on gender, teambuilding, trafficking for sexual and labor exploitation are defined as the most useful. As extremely important practical topic is also the presentation about how to recognize fake news on the internet. Almost unanimously as the most important part is defined the part in which the students delivered presentations, as well the received on their work feedback from the trainers.
The event is the second part of the training of young volunteers of BFPA - peer educators  -  on topics connected with health and sexuality education. The training was partially supported by Vivacom.
