Thank you for helping us Wake Up Zambia with UkaniManje.
UkaniManje works to reach youth with invaluable, accurate, relatable and easily accessible health information about HIV so that youth can protect themselves and make healthy decisions. Our early successes for the year include our widespread album release and our nationally broadcasted radio show which both support our HIV public health messaging campaign.
Since our successful album launch on December 1st 2021 (World AIDS Day), our songs and VIDEOShave reached more than a million people across social media, inspiring youth conversation and activism.
We also have a 10-part radio series hosted by Zambian teens trained in radio by our partner organizations “Agents for Change”. This radio show is aired weekly on 4 national radio stations across Zambia. Each episode brings together an UkaniManje artist, a doctor (Dr. Duncan Chanda, Director of Adult Infectious Diseases Centre of Excellence at Zambia’s University Teaching Hospital (UTH) and Dr. Naeem Dalal, psychiatrist and public health chairperson for the Zambia Medica Association) and a guest speaker relevant to the topic for powerful discussions on the messages behind the music.
We’ve done a lot, but we have so much more to do. Our next steps involve integrating these songs in a curriculum to take throughout Zambia and training a cohort of youth artists and singers to be change agents in their own community. If you would like to continue to support us, you can do so here.
We will continue to “Wake Up” Zambia throughout 2022! Join us!
