#Bodytalk is a social media Self-Awareness and Advocacy campaign which has exploded into a community and is becoming a movement. We are a peer education Organization.
#Bodytalk started as one girl’s realization that loving oneself didn’t have to be reserved for real life Barbies and Wonder woman; that we ordinary girls could try it too. Also, that we don’t always have to succeed, because it is an ongoing process, but that knowledge, that moment is where the journey starts.
So you want in but still don’t get it? Let me walk you through.
Never heard of those?? It might sound like rocket science but it’s not that complicated.
We are just a group of young people learning about who we are in this crazy world and sharing our experiences as we go along.
It would be great to add your voice to the mix!

Hear what some of #TeamBodyTalk has to say!
I feel to blessed to be part of this wonderful ride. Right from the first day till today I am a changed person and feel very different in the way I see things. Today the last day I have made up my mind to share my story because I know there is someone out there who needs to hear and definitely needs to boost up her self-esteem.

Poor Self-image, negativity, low self-esteem, too keen to people’s opinion, things I was so familiar with till December 2017 when I joined BodyTalk. Self-love, self-confidence and personal development are my new mantras. Love it!
On Sunday, 27th February 2022, we had a physical closeout meeting of the HerVoice: Aloud |Allowed project supported by the #HerVoiceFund to support the meaningful engagement of adolescent girls and young women in decision making processes. This held with 7 AGYW who actively participated in the project, BodyTalk’s project lead, project officer and one of its volunteers. We had a recapitulation of all activities carried out to monitor and evaluate the outcomes we had at the end of the project and share experiences by the #AGYW.
