Karine commented on Sex Education in Lebanon and Jordania

This is a great post Jonas. I am Lebanese and grew up in the Middle East and Lebanon up till college. I was faced with many of the same challenges and hurdles that Arianna mentioned. Even at some international universities, young girls write to each other in bathroom stalls and ask anonymous questions about sex and sexual education- things that may seem so banal to others are extremely important as they are often unknown by many. It's not only about understanding sexual health- but about understanding a young woman's body as it changes. It is unfortunate and devastating that the societal norms are such a large part of the culture and the everyday there. Let me know if you'd like to talk more, I'm happy to share more stories and tell you more about my personal perceptions.

Karine commented on stepWise - Skill Building One Step At A Time

Congratulations Bettina!! So happy to hear your idea won :)

Thanks Shane, will definitely look into the post you sent as a reference. We felt like a product like our could essentially be adapted in many different areas of the world, it's quite simple and the 'pieces' that come with it (such as the first responder group and community aspect) can be delegated within each city.
