In Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, the UNRWA and European Union are providing educational facilities and tools, which include custom made Arabic/English board games.

Among these games is the sexual health education game Moving Forward.

“Talking about sex is a big taboo,” explained Hisham, one of the project’s fieldworkers at the Chatila Palestinian refugee camp. “And when the kids don’t know what the problem is, they probably make mistakes.”

The game was produced under the framework of the awkwardly named “Reproductive Health and Well-Being of Youth Living in Six Palestinian Refugee Camps and Surrounding Gatherings in Lebanon” organization.
