During this day we were able to facilitate to adolescent girls and boys between ages 6-10 years old who attended the event. We managed to reach 300 plus adolescents that day whom we facilitated through edutainment. Topics discussed with the adolescent girls and boys included but not limited to;
- body mapping

- What to do in an event of violence or abuse
- Where, how and who to report to
