The Student Partnership Worldwide (SPW) South Africa Trust in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) leads the Safe Guard Young People (SYP) Programme in three districts in the Eastern Cape. The goal of the SYP programme is to contribute towards the improvement of the Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) status of young people aged 10 – 24, with a special focus on HIV prevention. The Nzululwazi Senior Secondary School forms a special focus of this programme. At the request of the provincial Department of Basic Education, and in collaboration with the Departments of Social Development and Health, SPW was requested to focus on a selected site – Nzululwazi Secondary School. The issue to be addressed focused on the unusually high rate of rate of teenage pregnancies amongst learners, both within the high and primary schools.
