Objective 1 : Education. Project: SPOT PFR#T2
Soroptimist Puberty Organizing Toolkit (SPOT). The SPOT project fulfills the gaps in Malaysia's sexual health and education for young people, especially young girls on the cusp of poverty. Malaysia data from 2012 states that there are more than 18,600 cases of underage pregancis per year and 50.4% of respondents admitted to having sex before the age of 14, this has also resulted in an increase in baby dumping and unsafe abortions. SI Petaling Jaya deveopmed the SPOT PuberTeen Talk and SPOT Workshops. SPOT is now recoginised by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia, supported by the Ministry of Health and the National Population and Family Develoment Board (LPPKN) as well as the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development of Malayia.
The project endeavours to answer the question: What do I wish I knew back then? By providing modules in a correct and age appropriate manner, through workshops, videos, social media and diaries it seeks to fill the gap between what children should know and their actual knowledge
