Young girls educated about leading healthy lifestyles

Isipingo SAPS, in partnership with House of David Community Centre, will be visiting various schools in the Isipingo area with the intention of running programmes that focus on school safety, security and the Fearless, Fabulous and Feminine (FFF) programme addressing issues that affect young girls.

The FFF programme facilitator, Melina Singh, together with Vaneshree Pillay of the House of David Community Centre, visited Platt Drive Primary School to speak to the grade seven pupils on how to maintain a clean and healthy lifestyle.

“The programme addressed the challenges that a young girl experiences and covers topics such as identity, destiny, sexuality and grooming. The girls were empowered to work hard and strive for success, have good values and morals and that they do not need to settle for second best but taught to think that they can achieve anything they set their minds too. We also spoke about knowing who they are as young people, their dreams and goals, sexuality and taking care of their bodies. It was a great educational day for the girls,” said Singh.

School principal, Mr Shange, stated that the programme was informative and professionally done and was also extremely appreciative to Isipingo SAPS and House of David Community Centre for facilitating the programme.
