The award winning MFM Project runs fertility education workshops for boys and girls in their pre-teen years. We are looking for women and men to become trainers.
“ I can only protect what I value and respect.”
In a society where sex education is geared towards protecting young people from fertility (with negative connotations such as sexual abuse, STIs, abortion), this education programme seeks rather to teach young people to value their own body as a treasure and thus protect their fertility.
The girl’s workshop is titled ‘The Cycle Show’: the girls sit around the stage of life, made of colourful, beautiful materials. They experience what is going on inside their bodies through interactive elements, age appropriate props, storytelling and music.
The boy’s workshop is titled ‘Agents on a Mission’: a James Bond style adventure around male anatomy, with lots of physical exercise. They also learning about the female body and fertilisation of an egg creating a new life.
Take home message – every one of us was a ‘double champion’ at the start of our lives – made from the champion sperm and the queen egg.

We would like to bring these fertility education workshops to Scotland and are looking for women and men who would like to train to teach these workshops. Women teach the girl’s workshop and men teach the boy’s workshop. Please get in touch with Jess if you are interested- email firstname.lastname@example.org. And you can also contact the UK Co-ordinator Hilary Hodgson email@example.com

Men’s training (“Agents on a Mission”): Thursday 20th April – Friday 21st April
Women’s training (“The Cycle Show”): Saturday 6th May – Sunday 7th May
If there is sufficient interest, then we can also organise training in Glasgow at a later date.
