International Women’s Day 2017 | #BeBoldForChange

 

AmplifyChange Opportunity grantee Think Young Women, Gambia - Haddy Jonga

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is to #BeBoldForChange, to call on everyone to help forge a better and more gender-inclusive world.

To celebrate the campaign, AmplifyChange grantees have shown their support by sharing pictures and quotes for the ‘#BeBoldForChange’ photo story.

Pictured here is Haddy Jonga, Programme Officer for Opportunity grantee Think Young Women, The Gambia, with Fatima Gomez, one of 60 mentees under the Girl’s Mentorship Programme.

Haddy describes how she is mentoring young girls to be bold for change:

“By being a sister and helping create a safe space to discuss the challenges they face, especially as teenagers.

I believe they will be the change we seek in this world.”

You can find out how more grantees are being bold for change by visiting amplifychange.exposure.co/beboldforchange

Thank you to all AmplifyChange grantees who contributed photos and quotes.


MannionDaniels has been contracted by Mott MacDonald to undertake two critical reviews for the DFID-funded Evidence for HIV Prevention in Southern Africa Programme.

The reviews focus on HIV prevention for adolescents with the aim of producing two discussion papers that will contribute to and broaden regional debates on issues affecting policy and programming on HIV prevention for adolescents in the Eastern and Southern Africa Region.

The topics of the discussion papers are:

  • The future of social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) in an era of combination prevention; and
  • The impact and value of a more nuanced and disaggregated definition of ‘adolescents’ for HIV prevention programming

The two discussion papers are in the final stages of development. The preliminary findings have been presented at a Technical Forum, hosted by EHPSA in Cape Town in September, with Alex le May present. Participants included researchers, multilaterals, donors, civil society organisations and representatives of national ministries of health and education, national AIDS commissions, and regional bodies.

Further information on the event can be found here on the EHPSA website.
