The Story of LoveInfo
The idea, and the realization of the need for a sex ed app like LoveInfo came from a shocking personal experience.
The head of a local elementary school told me about a five grader girl, who got pregnant by an eight grader boy. She felt trapped, and desperate... she later gave birth to twins at such a young age. That wasn't the way she imagined her life, or the life of her children.
I was astonished that this could still occur today. I didn't sleep too well that night. Early in the morning, I had the idea that perhaps the best way to prevent such cases would be a sex education app, which could be downloaded freely, anonymously, and gives credible information. An app that through interactive education, prevents STDs, teenage pregnancies and abortions, along with the bodily and mental harm that would come from them.
I haven’t found anything like that, so I gathered a team of health experts, and we started working on the Hungarian version in 2014. The LoveInfo program has very positive feedback, not just from parents and youngsters, but the media appreciates it as well. (A few photos show a very enthusiastic principal and me on various talk shows we were invited to about the app.)
Sexual development is a normal process that all young people experience,
and they have the right to frank, trustworthy information on the
subject. Despite this, sex ed is a delicate subject in many places, which parents and schools tend to procrastinate until it is too late. But
this playful app can be a useful tool for parents and educators as a professional crutch to lean on, and turn the dreaded talk into a fun experience!
Seeing how valuable our app proved to be at home, we knew we need to bring it to the whole world!
LoveInfo Lite: bringing sex ed to all
LoveInfo Lite, the lean multi-language version of the app, is in development right now. It provides credible information about sexuality, love and relationships in an easy to understand way. It teaches responsibility to youngsters, and helps to avoid the dangers facing them. Such as preventing sexually transmitted diseases, teenage pregnancies and abortions, and all the health-, financial-, and ecological problems they entail.
Anatomy, self-examination, safe sex, general- and intimate hygiene, dispelling common misconceptions
How to prepare for the first occasion? What to do if suspicion arises about STDs or an unintended pregnancy?
How to avoid certain dangers of the internet? Drug prevention, the human right of contraception, the basics of ecology and climate
Unique toon characters that give the app a personality, and make the contents memorable
This is how LoveInfo Lite can turn the vicious cycle into a virtuous cycle!
According to our plans, it would first appear in English (and Hungarian), and then in the top 10 most widely spoken languages. The app will also be free to download without any registration.
Imagine that this app reaches every young person in the world, which will dramatically reduce the incidence of STDs and teenage pregnancies! If the health, safety and happiness of young people is important for you, then take part in our endeavor to realize this project! The funds raised will be used for developing the app, translations and marketing, so that it reaches as many as possible. Thank you very-very much!
We would like if more children in the world could say:
„I couldn’t even wish for more loving and prepared parents, a warmer home, or a better age to be born at!”
