Обявената пресконференция определя „Азбука за теб и за мен“ - Ръководство за учителя – като УЧЕБНИК за 5-8 клас. Ръководството НЕ Е учебник за ученици, а помагало за учители, които са преминали през 10-дневно обучение за работа с него. То е част от образователен пакет за сексуално и репродуктивно здравно образование за 5-8 клас, издаден през 2005 година, в рамките на проект, изпълняван от Министерството на здравеопазването и Националния център по обществено здраве и анализи с подкрепата и финансовата помощ на Фонда на ООН за население. Този пакет се състои от три части – Ръководство за учители, Задачи за самостоятелна работа за учениците и Книжка за родители.

Ръководство за учители и задачи за самостоятелна работаОТ АВТОРИТЕ НА РЪКОВОДСТВО ЗА УЧИТЕЛИ,

София, 20.10.2013 г.

 В Древна Гърция философът Сократ е бил осъден на смърт за “развращаване на атинската младеж”, защото е учел своите ученици на себепознание и критично мислене.  Днес в 21 век сякаш отново е възможно да обвиниш в престъпление доказани професионалисти в сферата на здравето и образованието, които се опитват да учат младите да дискутират върху различията във възгледите и ценностите си  и  да търсят  толерантния подход към тях.
През последните дни,  „обществено ангажирани граждани“ и загрижени родители подложиха на атака Ръководството за учители по сексуално и репродуктивно здравно образование „Азбука за теб и за мен“. В някои публикации Ръководството, издадено с финансовата помощ на Фонда на ООН за население, и създадено с координацията на Министерството на здравеопазването и Националния център по обществено здраве и анализи, беше определено като „детско пoрно“.  Екипът от автори на „Азбука за теб и за мен“ категорично възразяват срещу  непрофесионалното тълкуване на теми в ръководството.

Special guests during the event were the Executive Director of ‘St. Sofia’ First OB Hospital Dr. Gergana Kolarova and the coordinator of BFPA in Pleven Dr. Krasimir Romanov. The priceless opportunity to have a direct dialog with Dr. Kolarova was highly appreciated by the team in Sofia and gave them the possibility to adjust the field efforts and optimize the collaboration with the hospital in the field of family planning.
Topics of the discussions during the three-day meeting were: what examinations to be done during the pregnancy and what is doing the gynecologist in the different stages; what are the benefits from health insurances; how much does it cost and how to recover health insurance rights; the benefits of visualization for understanding the information. Short educational films, developed to help the work at local level, were presented.
The work during the three days with health mediators and other colleagues working on the field from Montana, Sofia and Yambol included discussing the progress currently made and future activities trill the project end.
In the crisis months from the beginning of the year two tenth graders from Yambol were close to drop out from school due to the death of their parents, but the project team supported them and the boys will finish their secondary education. Two of the girls, trained on the project this year will be studying pedagogy in Veliko Tarnovo University.

The Learning action partnership was introduced to Safenet’s Cyber Scout Programme

Sofia, August 24, 2020

“I’m a 15-year old boy, in the ninth grade. Recently I met a girl in the social networks. After chatting a few days in Skype, we turned on cameras, send saucy pictures…. Now it transpires the girl is not a girl at all, I was recorded and being blackmailed, for money, for more pictures, otherwise the recordings will be made widely public. What do I do to get out of this situation?”
Another case:
“I’m in the sixth grade. A classmate who is a Facebook friend of our history teacher downloaded her picture and made her a professional profile in a porn site. What do I do, how do I react?”
The two cases are just a small part of the one-day training on the Cyber Scout programme for internet safety and online security for the members of the Learning action partnership (LAP). We talked about online bullying, online sexual exploitation, about the ways we should react, what rules apply, what is allowed and effective… We review different cases – from a threat from a pedophile regarding the security of a child to an innocent at first exchange between friends which escalates to online harassment that can have serious and long-term consequences for the victim’s life and mentality.

A short historical overview of the legislative environment and key normative documents was made.
