The organization Follow Up analyses the curriculum and educational forms on sexual consent in secondary schools

As a member organization of the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN), Follow Up completed the initiative “Analysis of the school curriculum and educational formats on sexual consent in high schools”, owing to a grant provided by the Kosovo Women’s Fund (KWF) of KWN.

Throughout the six-month initiative, the organization managed to collect data on a rarely addressed topic, such as analyzing the textbooks of the civic education subject in secondary school and looking at them from the perspective of sexual education and sexual consent.

Representatives of the organization consider that during the initiative, teachers who were the subject of interviewing and observation managed to reflect more on the importance of addressing topics of sexual education, sexual consent and gender sensitivity during teaching.

They have also had the opportunity to express their thoughts, attitudes and concerns regarding the challenges in dealing with such topics, and their concerns will be conveyed to relevant stakeholders. 

Moreover, Follow Up as a beneficiary of this project has enhanced its capacities by collecting concrete data on a topic that will serve for the further conduct of its activities.   

Organization Follow Up implemented this activity as a beneficiary of the 18th round of the Kosovo Women’s Fund, through the initiative of KWN “Advancing the women’s rights initiative”, funded by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and co-funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
