Tanti's Gift to Togo Togo: We held a M.A.P. (Men as Partners) event in April 2012. We covered subjects such as HIV, STDs, abstinence and condoms. We also talked to the girls about things they might do before they have a family, and talked to them about why it's not ok to have sex with teachers or for money or gifts. This is a picture of Tanit speaking to the students. Tanti is a lycee teacher from another village. She travels to lycees all over Togo to deliver the message of safe sex, and why girls and boys should respect themselves and each other sexually. You can see by this picture how she engages the kids and gets her message across. Tanti has a gift and I'm sure has had a positive impact on many teens.
