@nidsitis @saysnidhigoyal @vsheshco Our facilitators introduce the workshop, which will be conducted in sign language. We’re going to include sessions on the body, personal hygiene and HIV A woman stands in a classroom in front of a screen, speaking in sign language. On the screen the contents are listed
Participants are students aged 15 to 20 at a school for the hearing impaired
They are now being asked to think about the differences between girls and boys A screen with a slide displayed on it. It says: introduction 1. Share two interesting differences between girls and boys (differences could be about body, thoughts etc) 2. How do you disclose about your MC to other girls in front of men/boys?
‘Would you be able to talk about these things with boys?’ the facilitator asks. ‘No!’ all the participants say.
Participants discuss their embarrassment with talking about menstruation with men, and how they hide their pads in the corners of their cupboards
A conversation on puberty follows
Participants talk about shame - ‘We feel the need to hide our breasts’
.@nidsitis uses a model to explain the menstrual cycle, with the help of an interpreter Srinidhi stands with a orange model of the female reproductive system. Another women, the interpreter, stands behind her. Behind them is a screen with a slide depicting the menstrual cycle
.@nidsitis: ‘If we don’t feel shame when someone gets pregnant, we shouldn’t feel shame that we get our period every month’
Participants are full of questions about the menstrual cycle and pregnancy A classroom with 3 rows of seats. We can see the backs of 12 girls in blue uniforms with red bows in their hair facing 3 women and a slide with images of the menstrual cycle on it
Now watching a video created in sign language on child sexual abuse by @CHILDLINE1098. One of the few resources that takes into account children with disabilities
