Swabhiman recently conducted a program for adolescent girls to make them aware of the importance of life skills and the importance of hygiene for girls. The program was conducted by Mrs.S.Bhuvaneswari who explained to the girls the necessity of life skills and why is it so important with examples. The second important topic of discussion was the changes the body of a girl goes through while growing up, the emotional changes and the changes in moods. The importance of a nutritious meal and maintenance of hygiene and cleanliness at the time of menstruating was also imparted. The importance of the use of sanitary pads and other hygienic practices were also discussed. Group games were conducted so that the girls become more comfortable in discussing their problems and understand things better.
A question and answer session was conducted afterwards so that the girls could easily clear their doubts.
At the end of the session, the trainer talked about mental well-being. She advised yoga and proper sleep for good health. Also she advised them to develop useful hobbies/skills such as reading general knowledge books, physical exercises, drawing, gardening, participating in group games, which would help them to shape their future.
The programme came to end with the vote of thanks by Mr.Renukadevi P.S. who was the coordinator of the event.
