Describing experiences of encourage, inspiration, peace with one’s body/gender, having space to discuss insecurities, gain support to make conscious, informed choices about sexual-behavior, reproductive choices.
The content covering videos/audio, photos describing experiences collected, published, and showcased to young person who have no access to internet during the community meetings; translated to the local language they understand. We already have brand new laptop and video editing software for the project.
Testimonies highlighting experiences, thoughts in order for young women to feel good about themselves, their sexuality to promote self-esteem, a positive view on sexuality, equality and diversity. It’s not only about young women in the testimonies. We hope that girls watching testimonies will be inspired, empowered, reflect on their own life, who they are, the choices they have made, and the fact that they have rights as a girl. We hope to encourage girls all over the world to respond with their own videos and comments. We believe that girls who are informed, life-skilled, aware and empowered live a fulfilling life.
