Mobilization

Our interventions aim at mobilizing communities to generate important information that encourages health seeking behavior. This has helped to boost demand among adolescents to access and engage in community- and facility-based services.

Some of the youths whose lives have been changed in the community

We use the following Strategies SAFE SPACES:

  • We identify and establish safe spaces for the adolescents in different areas.
  • We then strengthen and support these existing safe spaces where adolescents can engage, discuss and learn about sexuality, HIV and SRHR without fear or judgement.
  • We identify existing tools or adapt tools for use in these safe spaces around topics such as sex, sexuality, gender, relationships, self-esteem, resilience, gender-based violence and forming healthy relationships.
  • We train youth leaders on what constitutes a ‘safe space’, how to run a safe space and potential topics for discussion.
  • We ensure adult mentors are available during the safe spaces to provide input to topics and to assist youth leaders on running exercises, as needed.
  • We ensure that the safe space is well equipped with indoor/outdoor games and other forms of edutainment’ which make the sessions interactive and attract adolescents to services.
