Save the Children International (SCI) East and Southern Africa Regional Office is currently implementing the Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRHR) project that is aimed at building the capacity and shaping the behaviour of youth through the provision of comprehensive sexuality education and information. The programme is premised on the increasing evidence that young people are disproportionately affected by HIV and access to CSE can equip, protect and empower these youth. SCI has identified six pillars which form the backbone of the programme. Each of these pillars has key content areas which should be adapted to the local context and further informed by the age and developmental stage of the child beneficiaries. In addition, they need to be tailored to the policy environment, harmful cultural practices and availability of services. Any sexuality education provided in the community should be complementary and consistent with that in the school system, promoting a continuum.
