Not the Numbers Game Series
On the Way

Sex education project combats teenage pregnancy in Peru.

A printer-friendly version of this page 11 minutes
Directed by Rossanna Diaz Costa
Produced by Emily Marlow and Jenny Richards for Television Trust for the Environment

When Janette Rodriquez was just 17, she was seduced by a neighbor she felt sorry for. When she became pregnant her parents threw her out.

Machismo male culture, the influence of the Catholic Church, and the widespread lack of sex education are three main reasons for Latin America's soaring teenage pregnancy rates. Janette and her friend Lucinda are receiving help from IMPARES, a new project designed to help young people get responsible sex education.

Other titles in the series are:

Mothers of Malappuram - Literacy and access to health services slow population growth in India.

Land of Widows - A midwife in post civil war Cambodia helps other poor women with health services.

The Cutting Edge - A Ugandan project attempts to change attitudes about female genital mutilation.

Fighting Back - Women in Bosnia are rebuilding war-torn lives.

Invisible Garments, Expensive Soles - Nike and other multinationals are moving production to developing countries like Indonesia.
