A great initiative by the DBE that is set to be implemented to help reduce early pregnancies

There has been great concerns by the Department of Basic Education over the cases of early pregnancies in schools for learners aged between 10 and 19 .This was after it was reported that there were 36 000 girls who had fallen pregnant during the first quarter of the academic year .

As a result of this , the department of education is reported to have indicated that there is going to be an intensification of the implementation of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education initiative . This initiative will help go a long way with educating learners about sexuality in order to help reduce early pregnancies .

Lack of education regarding sexuality is another factor which may make the learners unaware of the consequences of indulging in the act of intimacy at an early age .The initiative which is set to be set by the Department of education will go a long way in instilling the knowledge and ability to decide against doing wrong things .
