Adolescence is a period of life with specific health and developmental needs and priorities. It is also a time to develop knowledge and skills, learn to manage emotions and relationships, and acquire attributes and abilities that will be important for assuming adult roles.
We organised a 5-day Adolescent program in 2017 to prepare the students of N. S. Inter College, Sakipur for the future that lay ahead of them.
Doctors, psychiatrists, lawyers, social workers and many more experts from various areas were invited to address the girls to equip them with important rights, changes to expect- both mental and physical and ways to develop new skills. They were also taught ways to keep their mental health in check. Lawyers and social workers explained the importance of knowing the legal workings and rights required to work in the professional world. Doctors emphasised the importance of healthy eating and exercise for the human body.
