Over the past weekend, I helped lead a few events targeted at young people on the topics of preventing unwanted pregnancy and early marriage. The focus was also on self-esteem building, staying in school, and how to assert oneself as a woman. My site-mate Nathalie and I organized the events, which took place at a school and in an open public area, although we did none of the talking. We used Awa Traore, a motivational speaker who works for Peace Corps, to facilitate discussion among girls and between young men and women. We also had a local youth theatre group in Kolda do performances on the subject of unwanted teen pregnancy. It was overall a successful weekend, if exhausting and a bit chaotic. We estimated that we spread the message to over 300 people.
