MANKO KURA (Sexual hygiene awareness programme)

Many diseases spread everyday through sexual contact and lack of hygiene. Topics such as sexual hygiene are neglected and tabooed in our society. With the aim of creating awareness about the importance of sexual hygiene a programme was designed.

The 23 rotaractors of the Deep Campus organized a Sexual Hygiene Awareness Programme on 1st August 2018 for the 137 students of the Machhapuchre Higher Secondary School, Bhujrungkhola.

The knowledge and understanding of the topic of the grade 8 and 9 students was assessed with the help of questionnaire a day before the event. The content and level of and presentations were prepared accordingly. Following important topics were covered:


1-Pubertal changes and their effects.

2-Male sexual hygiene.

3-Female sexual hygiene and menstruation. The physiology and stigma associated with menstruation.

4-Sexually transmitted diseases and how these can be prevented.

5-LGBTIQ community and the need to stand up for them.

6-Sexual harassment. How to deal with it? How can it be averted?

7-Laws in Nepal regarding marriage, abortion, rape and cyber crime.

To overcome the hesitations and taboo associated with these topics the students were divided into small groups and assigned a moderator. The presenter introduced the topic giving the students a rough background followed by question answers to clarify any doubts related to the topic. This interactive session was filled with laughter and fun with all the students learning a lot.

A drawing competition was also held and top 3 participants were awarded. Since so many sexually transmitted diseases are prevented by the simple use of a condom the correct way to use one was demonstrated to the boys. The girls were taught on how to wear a sanitary pad and the importance of using one.

Overall, the day was very fruitful and all the participants enjoyed a lot. Not only did they learn from us but we also learnt a lot from them. It was a great experience and we look forward to many such programmes in the future.
