We have already started a new program with adolescent girls on Mental & physical well-being!
“Girls’ talk: Mental and physical well –being” program is developed with a holistic approach towards one’s well-being and self-care. Through this program participants will receive both theoretical and practical knowledge on holistic well-being. Another main topic of discussion is the theme of “Communication” with different main target groups.
Taking into consideration that the adolescent period is a critical time for the development of an individual’s personality and social connections; we believe that this program will be very useful for both their psychological and physical health, as well as promoting healthy and committed relationships.
The target group is consisted of adolescent girls between 13-16 years old. The training is held every Saturday, in the school. The duration of the program is 4 months.
