Everyone needs an Athi in their lives!

Early Years episode is a must for all parents/ carers/ early childhood and primary school teachers. Athi is a delight to listen to. She gives great practical examples of empowering our youngsters to take control of their bodies and to prepare them for life.

Honest, Accurate, Interesting Sexuality Education

I highly reommend this new educational podcast. It's useful for parents, educators and anyone who live and/or works with children. Sexuality infrormation, langauge and education in easy to understand, interesting interviews. Breaking down taboos about human sexuality and providing plenty of accurate facts and knowledge. Well done Anne and FPV a much needed resource.
