Special themes

It’s helpful to use ‘Auntie Stella’ as part of a wider programme on life skills and young people’s reproductive health, and to use it along with other resources to add information and variety. One way to do this is to choose one of the ten suggested themes, and the cards that go with each one.

There are a number of different ways of using the cards thematically. One method is to break into pairs or small groups and divide the letters up between you – then at the end you can report back to the others on what you did.

When you get together, remember to explore some or all of these questions:
  • What are the most important things we’ve learnt from going through the letter/s and Auntie Stella’s reply?
  • What do we want to do as a result of working on this theme – as individuals, in our families, relationships, with friends and in society?
  • What help or skills do we need?
  • What people and organisations do we know who deal with these issues? What are they doing? How can we contact and work with them?
  • Are there any Talking or Action Point activities we still want to do?

End by looking at the questions you wrote at the beginning to see which ones you can now answer, and what additional information or help you still need.
