GREAT Activity Cards: Married/Parenting Adolescents

The Gender Roles, Equality and Transformations (GREAT) Project works to improve gender equity and reproductive health in Northern Uganda.

GREAT uses radio drama, community mobilization, and small group discussions to promote dialogue and reflection among adolescents, with the goal of facilitating the formation of gender equitable norms and the adoption of attitudes and behaviors which may positively influence health outcomes among boys and girls, aged 10 to 29.

These activity cards are to be used to stimulate a fun group activity that includes a discussion on equality, reproductive health and safety from violence. A set of fact cards are included for reference. A subset of these fact cards is intended for younger adolescents 10-14 years: the body maps and questions and answers. There are three sets of activity cards: one set of cards for girls and boys 10 to 14 years of age, one set for young men and young women 15 to 19 years of age, and one set for newly married and parenting young people from 15 to 19 years of age.

The cards for this age group includes activities that focus on reproductive health, healthy pregnancies, planning for the future, alcohol abuse, and relationships.
