Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is a fundamental component of TASO’s youth program, aimed at equipping young people with accurate information, skills, and values to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. Here’s how TASO provides comprehensive sexuality education:

  • Age-Appropriate Curriculum: TASO develops age-appropriate CSE curricula tailored to the specific needs, developmental stages, and cultural contexts of young people. The curriculum covers a wide range of topics, including human anatomy, puberty, reproductive biology, contraception, STI prevention, HIV/AIDS, gender and sexuality, relationships, consent, and rights.

  • Interactive Learning Methods: TASO employs interactive and participatory learning methods to engage young people in CSE. This may include group discussions, role-playing exercises, games, case studies, multimedia presentations, and experiential learning activities. Interactive sessions create a safe and supportive environment for young people to explore sensitive topics, ask questions, and share experiences.

  • Peer Education: TASO trains peer educators from within the youth community to deliver CSE sessions to their peers. Peer educators serve as relatable role models and advocates for positive behavior change, fostering open dialogue and peer support networks among young people. Peer-led CSE sessions create a dynamic and inclusive learning environment that resonates with young people’s lived experiences.

  • Holistic Approach: TASO takes a holistic approach to CSE, addressing not only biological aspects of sexuality and reproduction but also social, emotional, and relational dimensions. CSE curriculum integrates discussions on communication skills, decision-making, assertiveness, self-esteem, body image, diversity, consent, and respectful relationships, empowering young people to navigate complex issues and make healthy choices.

  • Gender-Sensitive and Inclusive: TASO’s CSE curriculum is gender-sensitive and inclusive, recognizing the diverse identities, experiences, and needs of young people. The curriculum promotes gender equality, challenges harmful gender norms and stereotypes, and fosters respect for diversity in sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. TASO ensures that CSE is accessible and relevant to all young people, regardless of their background or identity.

  • Parent and Caregiver Involvement: TASO encourages the involvement of parents, caregivers, and community members in CSE initiatives, recognizing their role as primary educators and influencers in young people’s lives. TASO provides resources and support to parents and caregivers to facilitate open communication with their children about sexuality, relationships, and reproductive health.

  • Continuous Learning and Support: TASO offers ongoing support and follow-up to young people participating in CSE programs, providing opportunities for further learning, skill-building, and peer support. TASO ensures that CSE is integrated into its broader youth programs, reinforcing key messages and skills through various youth-focused initiatives and activities.
