Teens Making an Impact in Mali

By Lucy Tian | GAIA VF Intern

In Mali, teenagers are leading the campaign to raise awareness and combat misinformation about COVID-19. Meet Fatoumata, a 15-year old who hosts a radio show in Mopti, located in central Mali. Fatoumata is testimony that educating our youth leads them on a passionate and effective path in society. As a 14-year old, Fatoumata attended training programmes hosted by UNICEF and other organizations. With the skills, knowledge, and encouragement Fatoumata and the other students received from mentors, they were empowered to become voices within their communities. The Teen Peer Education program at GAIA VF also actively recruits the next generation of Malians. Focused on teen health education, the Teen Peer Education programs trains 14 to 18-year-old adolescents and young adults through an engaging and inspiring teen health curriculum that aims to address health issues faced by youth in Mali. About 113 teens are reached per month, all commissioned to be voices and leaders within their community. Donate today to empower and encourage young community health leaders!
