What is "Games for Rohingya Adolescents and Youth"?

Games for Rohingya Adolescents and Youth is the first game that was made for Rohingya teenagers. It's a series of 7 different games. These game objectives are Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) issues.

Adolescents. As soon as this word comes to mind, we see unkempt hair, an irritable mood, not wanting to talk to anyone, and even the conversation is not right. So no one likes them.

But why?
During this time, adolescents go through some stages. As a result, both their physical constitution and mentality change. But they do not understand that they are going through some change. And this is a normal thing.

Adolescents think that they have had a terrible illness. So they avoid the company of people. Does not share any issues with anyone. As a result, they become emotionally drained. The mood becomes irritable. Games for Rohingya Adolescents and Youth will help them overcome this hardship.

Teenagers will know unknown things through Games for Rohingya Adolescents and Youth. The game will refute common misconceptions about SRH issues like Girls' puberty, Boys' puberty, Wet dreams and male reproductive system, Female reproductive system and menstruation, STIs and HIV/AIDS, Child marriage and early pregnancy, and short-term family planning.

These games run on low-configuration computers, android phones and do not require an internet connection to play. The game's rules are very simple, with information-revealing quizzes. Here, quizzes dispel misconceptions about the physical and mental changes that adolescents make during their adolescence. In addition, it helps to make these changes easier and more natural for them.
