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. 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. The units covered are those on AIDS; and Family Health and Social Problems because they address key issues which require immediate intervention through life skills education.

The lessons are mainly aimed at student teachers, although with some modifications they may be used with other groups. It is up to the facilitator/tutor to decide which activities are most relevant to his/her group and what other activities s/he might use.
