I taught a class on Monday. 16 students representing all four grades at Abukloi School attended. In the morning, I taught a class on health and sanitation with a focus on diseases common to South Sudan. Students had the opportunity to practice good hand washing techniques. We also had a brief review of human anatomy, and students were able to take each other's blood pressure and pulse.
In the afternoon, I spoke about responsible sex and healthy pregnancy. Luckily, a local midwife helped me. It was a very lively conversation, and many cultural myths were dispelled. A pregnant woman who worked in the compound was kind enough to let us use her bell to listen for fetal heart sounds. The training was well received. Hopefully, it enlightened the students on healthy lifestyles and responsible sexual relationships.
