Project Report | Sep 2, 2022
UkaniManje 2022

By Katy Weinberg | UkaniManje Executive Director

Dear Friend,

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.  

The World Health Organization estimates that while the world paid attention to COVID19- there were an additional 3 million people who became newly infected with HIV.

In Zambia, HIV remains the number 1 cause of death and youth need information to protect themselves. 

A New York Times article states:

"Progress against HIV has faltered, and global infections have held steady since 2018. In 2021.... people ages 15 to 24 years — and young women in particular — carried a disproportionate share of the burden. One new infection in an adolescent girl or young woman occurred every two minutes.... In sub-Saharan Africa, young people accounted for 31 percent of new infections, and nearly four in five of them were among girls and young women." 

 

Our songs have reached more than a million Zambian youth and two of our songs recently were nominated for the prestigious Kwacha Awards (Zambia's Grammy equivlant).  

 

We’ve done a lot, but we have so much more to do. Our next steps involve giving youth a platform to create their own music for HIV awareness  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!

 

Nototela (Thank you!),

Katy Weinberg
