More and more young people are engaging in risky sexual behavior than ever before, with this regard Mercy Education Office organized human growth and sexuality class sessions and partnered with AJAN (African Jesuit AIDS Network) to ensure that students received accurate information on Sexuality and Sexually Transmitted Infections. The focus was to make students aware that their physical, emotional, psychological, sexual and social growth was a normal stage of human growth and development and not a license to engage in sexual activity. Students were also made aware of Gods purpose for sexuality and encouraged to accept their own uniqueness. The objective was to empower them to abstain from unacceptable sexual behavior and avoid engaging in premarital sex.
