Teen Radio Producers in Mozambique
This month marks Ouro Negro’s 6-year anniversary! This year, in addition to maternal and child health, child nutrition, and disease prevention, we’re prioritizing adolescents by focusing on youth-led programs in two provinces and addressing the impact of COVID on education. Reducing teen and unintended pregnancy leads to healthier children that grow up into healthy adults.
Ouro Negro is so successful that we're using its audience reach and media outlet partnerships for our new initiative, Acesso Sem Barreiras (Access Without Barriers).
Aimed at further improving sexual and reproductive health education and services for adolescents in the country, Acesso Sem Barreiras is powerful because:
- It teaches service providers how to talk to adolescents about family planning, especially those with disabilities.
- It is inclusive. Content is tailored for teens and young adults with and without disabilities.
- It leverages effective relationships and partnerships in the country to get information to the hardest-to-reach communities.
Our partners for Acesso Sem Barreiras include the Government of Mozambique at central and provincial levels, the International Centre for Reproductive Health (ICRH), TV Surdo (TV for the Deaf), TV Mozambique, Radio Mozambique and various community radio stations. The program’s primary funding comes from the Flanders Cooperation and is also supported by generous donations from supporters like you.
Thank you for your generous support. You help us continue producing media that makes change.
