My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region, New York, NY, USA
I am a volunteer in PLAFAM (Venezuela), also Iam studing psichology in the Universidad Metropolitana. I am actually working in PLAFAM as agent of change in the subject of sexual reproduction in teens and adolescents in PETARE. This neighborhood is the biggest and more poor economically speaking town in Caracas, Venezuela. In this location we have problems like drugs, murders, sex abuses and ignorance. Actually we are working in a college with 9 persons that are compromised to this work of make new promoters of a concious sexual life. For that reasons we are improving our effords to make Venezuela a better place to live, more sensitive and human with knowledge, care and compromise. We are sure that PLAFAM is a NECESARY institution that fills a empty space in this matters in our country
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Plans like this that offers to the people the oportunity of getting new kwoledges about some topics that are excluded of the official school curriculum in our classrooms. We offer a new way of approaching or the teaching about sexual life in young and adolescent.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
