PUP launched Project Flora, a groundbreaking initiative on sexual education and reproductive health

In celebration of young women’s right to comprehensive sexual education, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) kicked off Project Flora, a one-day community-based campaign event centering on sexual and reproductive health awareness across youth on June 28 at San Vicente Elementary School, Barangay San Vicente, Angono, Rizal.

Campaign manager Alessandra A. Veracruz led the event that is focused on empowering teenage girls to make informed decisions about their bodies and future. ABNKGGWNPLAKO?! (Aba, Nakagagawa Na Pala Ako) carried the theme Kilos Kabataan: Tungo sa Wastong Sekswal na Kalusugan, which highlighted the risks and realities of teenage pregnancy while amplifying the call for sex education.

“As a young woman who has gone through the chaotic phase of adolescence, I found this community-based campaign to be a comforting embrace for all young girls, or young Floras, who are on a similar journey of blooming at their own pace,” she said.

“This campaign may have been created as a final requirement for our course, but its purpose extended beyond that. Its aim has grown deeper as we worked on it, and I can’t wait to empower young women to make more educated decisions about their reproductive health and future.”

Co-campaign managers Johnoah Mae Zepeda and Princess Hannah Tarog hoped participants return to their homes with a deeper understanding of their reproductive system and potential, tailored to meet the specific needs of their local community in addressing early teenage pregnancies.

The program featured panel discussions, interactive games with giveaways, simultaneous booths for health screenings, and distribution kits.

Project Flora’s ABNKGGWNPLAKO?! was co-presented by Angono’s Municipal Health Office, Barangay San Vicente Sangguniang Kabataan Council, Nala Woman, and Motivo Philippines.

Project Flora is a student-led initiative by senior broadcasting students of PUP’s College of Communication in Sta. Mesa, Manila.
