When I was in high school, an alumnus of the school came with some people and talked to us on the topic ‘SEX AND THE GIRL’. The message was implanted subconsciously in me, it affected everything I did, it affecting my dealings with boys and most especially has made me a complete woman 14 years after. Sometimes, I ask myself how would my life have been? would rape? unwanted pregnancy? sexually transmitted diseases? low self-esteem? the list is endless, be in my ‘box’ today? I was opportuned to receive a live changing message that groomed me into a better woman. Now, its my turn, I reach out to girls everywhere. You should do it.
I remember when I was a ‘girl’, I was quick to dismiss all talk shows, they were boring to me. I am sure you felt and feel the same way. Before the grand day, I said to myself, ‘you better come up with ideas to spice this topic otherwise you will meet a cold war’. Sidra was of the opinion we start the day with the cutting of a symbolic banana cake, of course, she made the cake. It worked! After the cutting, of course the eating was preserved for later, you wont want everyone bawling on me. You noticed the attention and the strength of participation. We nailed it. We answered all sort of questions, believe me when I say all sorts. the girls were free, they had the urge to learn and asked questions bothering on so many years, these were questions they could find no answers to.
As usual we form clubs in every school we visit and maintain contacts with every school. We are reachable anytime, we opened a counselling unit where Mothers call when they have problems with their daughters or the girls themselves. It is refreshing to know that you have averted a case of rape or an unwanted pregnancy, in a nutshell, you have succeeded in molding a complete woman for tomorrow.
