Description: 
This document is a training manual designed to help facilitators to provide sexuality education (human sexuality, sexual and reproductive health, rights and responsibilities). This training manual (level 3) was produced and revised by Girl's power initiative (GPI), a Nigerian NGO in 2003. In general, GPI focuses on assisting girls to achieve personal empowerment and to reject inequality; building their leadership skills to overcome subservient roles and take on active engagement on equal basis with their male peers; educating them to take actions to overcome risks to their health arising from gender violence and discrimination. It is assumed that adolescents need to receive clear, protective messages about sexual decision-making, because they need to hear affirming messages about healthy relationships and healthy sexuality. The curriculum also emphasizes the role of facilitators and gives some tips on facilitating skills. This manual is for level 3, it means that lessons in level 1 and level 2 need to be covered as a prerequisite and basis for treating the topics in level 2 and 3. The methods of training will be different depending if the girls are 10-14 years old or above 15 years. The method used in the curriculum is participative : it promotes the realization of different activities such as ice-breaker, role-play, brainstorming, small group discussions, story lines or case studies, myths and facts....
