Supporting Olorien Secondary School to learn about sexual health
Brenda and Goodluck are students at Olorien Secondary School in Arusha. Their school is taking part in our Sport and Sexual Health Project, supporting them to learn about sexual health through games. Here they explain how the project has benefited them.
Brenda: ‘YES! Tanzania has helped me achieve self-confidence because I know how I can protect myself’
‘I’m Brenda and I’m 16 years old, and a student at Olorien Secondary School.
‘The programme of YES! Tanzania has improved my life because it has taught me about the different ways I can combat HIV and AIDS. They have told me the different ways that I can get infected by HIV and also the different ways I cannot get HIV/AIDs, through hugging people, shaking hands or eating with people.
‘They also told me different ways I can cope with the challenges in life as a teenager.
‘YES! Tanzania has helped me achieve self-confidence because I know how I can protect myself, and I have achieved the goal of being one of the educated people about HIV and AIDs. It has made me an ambassador to my fellow youths, the other girls and other boys who don’t know about HIV.
‘They have also helped me achieve the goal of a having a sense of accomplishment in my life in general.
‘I really hope that in the future YES! Tanzania will continue with the same programme and unleash many people’s potential, including telling them about the bad effects of HIV.
‘YES! Tanzania is so helpful to many people in the country especially us students and the youths that are facing different challenges that can lead to us getting HIV/AIDS.’
Goodluck: ‘YES! Tanzania has inspired me to study hard so I can become a doctor, and help other young people who are in need’
‘My name is Goodluck Enock, and I’ve been a student at Olorien Secondary School since 2015.
‘YES! Tanzania has helped me to improve my sexual health knowledge through building my capacity on issues related to transmitted disease such as HIV/AIDS and how to avoid them.
‘YES! Tanzania has inspired me to study hard so I can become a doctor, and help other young people who are in need.
‘I would like people to know that YES! Tanzania is doing good things in our community, for example it educates people on how to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS, gonorrhoea and syphilis.’
