It was a great first day at teaching humanism and feminism, at Garama Secondary Humanist School, in Kisinga Town, Kasese district for the first lesson I was assigned.
A warm welcome by the Head Teacher Mr Moses and Miss Cathy who introduced me to the entire school community.
I was given the floor for my lesson and all students were eager to know more about HUMANISM. I explained using questions shown on a chart attached. Students were eagerly attentive.
I explained to them that being a humanist is a life style with positive ideas and this helped most students realise that they have been humanists unknowingly.
A question was posed whether we can live without being religious. It was debated. Students realized with humanism they can live better with others.
AFTER EXPLANATIONS ON HUMANISM, I led another session on girls’ child education where the following topics were talked about:
- girl child and road to her good future
- why some African girls can not achieve their future dreams
- early forced marriages
- early pregnancies
- sex harassments
- school dropouts
- orced labour
I encouraged girls to develop skills like self awareness, self esteem, correct decision making, critical thinking, self respect etc.
Questions were welcomed. I answered them accordingly. Request was posed that I go back for more lessons and I will do it.
The session took four hours. The next lecture will be at Nyakiyumbu Center.
