Dimapur, Sep. 10 (EMN): The Project Development 4 Adolescent under Can Youth organised a webinar for adolescents on the topic: “Puberty – mental, physical, emotional and social changes”, with Akangkokla Namo, programme officer of the Family Planning Association of India (FPAI), Nagaland Branch, and Sebastian, executive committee member of FPAI, as panellists.

Namo spoke on the changes that occur in girls during puberty such as change in their body size and shape, hair and skin issues. She also shared on the changes and development process in the female reproductive system and problems faced by the adolescent during the menstruation period.

She also mentioned how one should take care of this transactional change in the body that begins to develop as one moves from a kid to adult.

Sebastian spoke about the changes that occur in male adolescents including change in mentality and social-level. During this developmental stage, he said one can be easily influenced by peer groups in both negative and positive aspects. Stressing on importance of education, he said that education helps in moulding one’s life, creation of a better society and becoming responsible adult.

The session was attended by various adolescent clubs and adolescents from project intervening areas.
