ABOUT THE CHARITY

Established in 2014, the mission of this NGO is to connect young Africans to proven life-saving information. The charity achieves this by scaling sexual health information campaigns shown in randomized trials to have major impact “…we don't invent new ideas. We figure out how to scale ones that have already worked to bridge the gap for the millions of youth who lack the access to this key life saving HIV information”.  

This organization firmly believes sex education needs to be taught by youth for youth. “You can't send old officials to teach kids about sex. It doesn't work. It's not relatable. It's boring. It doesn't have impact. We make sure the messages we pick up - the ones research has shown work -- also get delivered in a way our target audience deserves: by youth for youth”.

PROJECT DETAILS

Will include documentation of: the stories and experiences of the youth as they participate in program implementation, the methods used by staff as they complete surveys and gather information, as well as documenting field work as staff follow up with students who have dropped out of school. The images will be used for promotional purposes including education of the public, and communication with the various stakeholders engaged with this organization.
