We also work with incarcerate minors and we provide them with medical and psychological assistance . We have a gynecologist for the girls. Most of them have been abused, some of them are pregnant, some have sexual infections. So the gynecologist has sessions with them to teach about their body, their sexuality, pregnancy prevention, health and food.
EDUCATION TO CONSCIOUSNESS
Stand up for Jamaica provides the incarcerated girls with a service of Art Therapy in order to discover with them their talents, their abilities, their individual gifts and teach them to love themselves because the abused ones do not value themselves. For adults we offer session, starting from the acknowledgment of the damage they made to others, about anger control, self-awareness, and we train them to become peer educators.
