Peer Education Sessions in Sudan 

In the Summer school in Kovachevci, the topic of the day of the training was “Sexual identity and Sex roles.” The trainees worked again in 11 Peer Education, one Adults and one TBE training groups. The sessions again were very energetic and interesting. The TBE group also covered some of the topics but with interesting theatre techniques. Young people enacted both female and male roles. Most of the time they worked in small groups in which they shared their views, opinions and knowledge about different topics. Videos and interviews from the training were made which were related to “Sexual Identity and Sex roles”

Later on, all trainees presented their NGO and shared their experience in a very interesting way. Songs, short plays and drawings were just part of their performances. Each group made their own signs which are going to be combined and drawn again on a flag.
