On April 13th, fourteen orphanage children ages 13-17 years old were learning about Relationship and Love, where developing skills of communicating with girls and boys and safe and responsible sexual behavior. Such training workshop is part of our annual social program "On the threshold of independent life"!
To be honest, the children were looking forward to this coming training because they are interested in such a topic and it is important for them.
In a good atmosphere the boys and girls asked a "direct" questions about "true love", "friendship", "healthy sexual relations", "responsibility", "contraception", "family", "fatherhood" . This time the trainers were Iryna Vakalyuk, the psychologist of the Orphans’ Future and Yuriy Mamus and Zhenya Chekushkin from the Christian Learning Center "Success". Traditionally, the children were improving their communication skills in using public transport in the city of Ternopil and were choosing a place for lunch using pocket money as financial literacy.
We received such impressions from the children: "The lesson was interesting for me because I understood the essence of sexual relations and what kind of love is, and what is love”, "I learned how to build a healthy relationship with a guy and what to look for."
This program is supported by the @Global Fund for Children (USA), @RealMenRealStyle (USA)!
