APROFAM Celebrates 48 Years of Making Change in Guatemala
A group of Guatemalan youth advocates for comprehensive sexuality education are gathered in a circle, sharing common myths about sex. If a girl has wide hips, she’s not a virgin. Boys cannot properly develop if they don’t have sex. It’s impossible to get pregnant the first time you have sex.
In a society where comprehensive sexuality education is the exception rather than the norm, myths like these spread, shaping attitudes, influencing decisions, and leaving young people unequipped and misinformed.
