    This description of Elisabeth Raith-Paula's work was prepared when Elisabeth Raith-Paula was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
    Introduction
    Elisabeth Raith-Paula is changing a long-practiced paradigm of sex education in Germany by applying the principle that children learn to appreciate and value their bodies as the miracles they are before dealing with their sexuality in matters of disease and pregnancy prevention. Elisabeth allows girls and boys to build a strong body competence before puberty as a basis for self-confidence concerning their sexuality and informed decision-making throughout their personal development.
