We borrowed all our necessities from the Women's Union down in the area. A motorbike, speakers, laptops, banners. We were in such a rush that we forgot to apply our sunscreen and we arrived there a few shades darker. But we weren't really concerned about this issue, the key was to focus on provided these children with the much needed education.
One of our major concerns was to ensure all the children of these remote areas learn and appreciate the value of their bodies, and how to protect themselves from unwanted advances. I wondered how many children in that room had not been educated about sex, and the rights and responsibilities that came with it???? I knew the answer was, unfortunately, all of them.
