Expansion

Requests have come in for the development of a puberty books for boys in more countries, and a book for older girls and boys struggling with the challenges of sexual pressures.  The aim will be to develop a model of each in Tanzania. We have also received invitations to develop girl's puberty books in Zambia, Eritrea, Rwanda, and Senegal.  The importance of capturing the voiced experiences of young people within each country is central to the development of future books, and so expansion will occur at a pace that will assure the highest quality books can be developed while relationships are built to gain buy-in from the highest levels of education and health policy within each country.

Zimbabwe and Uganda

Independent experts have adapted the Tanzania girl's puberty book on their own to the Zimbabwe and Uganda contexts. Save the Children also adapted the book to Uganda, and developed a Uganda boy's puberty book.
