Viviendo mi sexualidad saludable (“I live my sexuality healthily”) is a project that was initiated by the international organization “Mer et Monde” and is financed by the International Relations and Francophonie Minister within the program Québec sans frontières

Québec sans frontières (QSF) is an initiation program into international solidarity. The organization promotes and facilitates the engagement of Quebec citizens ranging from 18 to 35 years of age to carry out international solidarity projects.

Les 3 sex*, in partner with the Les Ateliers Sex URL, will be spearheading the five hour long training program for interns who will be headed for Nicaragua in the summer of 2018. The program will be focused on equipping the interns with the tools to educate on matters of sexual health, as well as gender equality. During the summer abroad, Les 3 sex* will also act as ongoing consultants for the participants.

This partnership presents a unique occasion to put forward the specialized qualities sexologists have in the intervention of issues linked to sexual health at an international level. 

Project Objectives:

The improved quality of life of adolescents within the Ochomogo community and their partner communities through sexual reproductive health (SRH), gender equality (GE) as well as personal and professional growth.

Specific Activities:

  • Become familiar with the project, its particular context (e.g. early pregnancy, cultural and religious taboos) as well as its health and social issues.
  • Support the partner in collecting and analyzing information to identify adolescents' level of knowledge and risk behaviors related to SRH.
  • Participate in the SRH/GE sensibility training for agents (youth brigade and health promoters).
  • Collaborate in the creation and design of educational tools (i.e.: didactic manual in SRH animation, pedagogical sheets in SRH and GE).
  • Contribute to the development of training seminars on SRH specifically addressing public beliefs, sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBI), types of contraception, family planning, sanitary risks faced by adolescent mothers, and sexuality without discrimination or stigmatization. 
  • Participate in the facilitation of SRH educational workshops with adolescents, parents and a community composed of key community figures.
  • Contribute to the development and animation of a workshop on social mobilization to benefit the community. 
  • Participate in the design and facilitation of motivational and GE talks (e.g., principles, gender violence, social representations of masculinity/femininity).
  • Take part in the organization and animation of mobilizing activities in SRH/GE (e.g: theater- forum, flashmob).
  • Develop tools to promote awareness (e.g.: murals, banners and t-shirts), in collaboration with the youth brigade and adolescents.
