Striving to promote an increased quality of life, both emotionally and physically has long been a priority for HOLA. In the past we have implemented a Sexual Health and Wellness program with the local middle and high schools. Over the coming year we plan to build on this work partnering with the local schools in Chacraseca to implement a comprehensive Sexual Education Curriculum. Sexual Education has become a renewed focused for the local schools following, among other factors, rising rates of teen pregnancies and both parties are excited to work together on this project.
Through rigorous data collection, to be conducted by both in country and out of country volunteers, and a collaborative approach with the schools and teachers themselves, we believe we can produce a highly impactful curriculum that will have positive impact on a great number of students and the wider community as well.
