It only costs $180 to sponsor one of our teenagers to attend a week long course that will change their lives. The KAROL&SETHA course, which stands for Knowledge And Reflection On Life & Sexuality Through an Holistic Approach has been designed with the aim of preparing young people and couples to have responsible, happy and stable relationships by working with the whole person - body, heart and mind.
Daring to break the traditional silence, true communication of needs and feelings is the program's fundamental tool. As part of the Maryknoll organisation to fight HIV/AIDS, KAROL&SETHA actively promotes knowledge of safe sex. They have accepted us into their program, and we have chosen 18 of our older geckos to attend a week-long workshop at the K&S centre in Phnom Penh, hopefully at the end of June if funds permit.
Children are only children for a short time, then they must take responsibility for the rest of their lives as adults. This is our opportunity to properly equip them - physically, emotionally, mentally - to spread their wings with positive self-assurance when it comes time to leave Green Gecko because they are ready for the world!
