It's Thursday - which means girls club day at our maison. Today's events included popcorn making (as an income-generating activity) and a sex ed session with a condom demonstration. We are proud to introduce you all to Petey (pictured here), our wooden penis. These guys are issued to all volunteers and indisPENISble to our health-related work. They're great for so many things: a teaching tool, a laugh with villagers, or when you need a friend in village.

  1. Those girls seem so young! Important information though.

  2. Agreed, they are young (between 11 and 15 yrs old). Puberty and sex and pregnancy are such taboo topics and with many of them having babies in their late teens and early twenties, I take any opportunity I get to talk about sex! Our grown-up neighbors with kids love looking at the boite d'image (picture book)too and testing their condom skills with Petey. It's fun for the whole family!
