So good to have the staff from Likahaan (Canadian NGO) come and teach Reproductive Health and Family Planning to parents and teenagers.
Children do not have to be simply a consequence of sex, they should be planned and prepared for, so that they are born into the best possible family situation, which helps them and the family.
All children are blessings from the Lord, but due to poor, or often no, family planning, many children and the families are “far from blessed”, some children simply struggle from day one, due to poor thought and little planning on the part of the parent. The families, especially the mothers struggle with just way too many mouths to feed and too many children to put through school.
Sex is great, but it has a time and a place, it has a context and when it is correctly understood it plays its part in God’s great plan for our lives.
Likahaan gave a great interactive presentation, distributed information and left young people more “informed” than when they came in. Brilliant.
