Training on Reproductive Health for Pupils from Sofia

Q&ASofia, December 5-9, 2016

Daniela Dikova from Bulgarian Association of Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) trained ninth grade students in the American College of Sofia (ACS) during the days 5-9 December 2016. Carefully and highly motivated the young people listened and asked questions on topics connected with reproductive health. The topics about history and contemporary methods of contraception, sexual transmitted infections, as well interactive exercises gave to the pupils basic and valuable for every person knowledge. 

TrainingThe discussion was around first menstruation, wet dreams, emotional condition of teenagers and other specificities during the puberty, about the vaccines and Human Papiloma Virus, about the potential risks of sexually transmitted infections, including leading to infertility when having unsafe sex, about the importance of prophylactics and about risks of blood transmitted infections when making tattoos and body piercing.

Social and health messages in Roma neighbourhoods through theatre

Sofia, July 31, 2019

On the last day of July the Roma neighbourhood Fakulteta in Sofia was visited by William Shakespeare and Miguel de Servantes. We started with the best – Romeo and Juliet and Don Quixote. The Roma actress Natalia Tzekova staged a funny and educational performance with the participation of talented children and youth from the neighborhood in which the art was intertwined with social and health related messages. Romeo and Juliet demonstrated the benefits of family planning, contraception and health education and spoke in verse about the harm of school dropout, early marriages and children having children. The participants performed short sketches which contained the same messages, debunked myths and demonstrated how powerful personal example is. Don Quixote explained some of the community specificities which started a short discussion on stage who should take example from whom about health and health prevention. In between sketches and play scenes the participants shared their own personal stories about health and family planning. At the end of the play as a recap of what was presented they raised a few banners with messages on the same topic”: “I have dreams and goals”, “I am not an incubator for babies”, “Ask – someone will tell you”. The audience appreciated the messages and the element of humor in the sketches and play scenes.

 
The alumni of the first Health Education Academy graduated successfully

Sofia, June 17, 2019

Monday, June 17th. Our first alumni class of the Sofia Health Education Academy demonstrated their skills and knowledge in front of classmates, teachers, school directors, school psychologists, parents and supporting institutions. The solemn event took place in the Events Hall at 1st High school, Sofia. The young people from 1st, 144th, 119th schools, 1st ELS and the Professional School of Textile and Fashion Design split into three teams after “drawing straws” and presented the topics “Transformations During Puberty”, “Contraception and STIs” and “Prevention of addictions”. We are very glad that our video on puberty was part of the “fun”. Otherwise the presentations pushed the audience to participate actively. The culmination was a surprise for all – we were visited by the TV show “Masters of the air” who enhanced the effect of the challenge.
