(introduction...)

Part One of this section provides an introductory unit on health in which a few activities are provided and suggestions are given as to how to begin integrating the Sara Communication Initiative and Children’s Rights issues into the training programme from the outset. Part Two then provides sample lesson formats for some of the units, in line with the analysis of the syllabus in Section Three which include the suggested lifeskills based on the general characteristics and needs of the learners.

Each activity has been prepared with emphasis on life skills education through interactive/participatory methodology. The activities have also taken into account the rights of children in Uganda, the needs of the Ugandan girl child and gender issues.

General Objectives

1. To introduce the students to a broad concept of health which includes the interaction between environment, community and the individual and the role of life skills in promoting health.

2. To integrate the Sara Communication Initiative (SCI) and Children’s Rights issues into Health and other courses.
