There was initial dialogue between UNICEF and Freedom from Hunger to identify ways to make health & life skill education for adolescent girls simple, interesting and outcome oriented under SABLA program. With expertise of Freedom from Hunger in the area of demonstrating effective education tools, a module called Learning Games for Girls was shared. The LGG contains different aspects of adolescent health (including nutrition, personal hygiene, knowing your bodies, HIV /AIDS) along with some life skills including decision making as well as simple financial tools like savings. These are divided into 8 sessions and each session having different types of games through which the girls will learn, think and act as they play. LGG is already being tested and proved to produce results.
