Project Title: HerVoice Aloud/Allowed
BodyTalk is a community-based organization created by adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in December 2017 which uses peer advocacy to educate AGYW on Body Image, Self-esteem and Health.
Started as a social media campaign, it leverages modern communication tools for peer advocacy through shared knowledge and personal experience. It uses social channels like chat groups and blogs as the main communication media. In addition, we mobilize for community events, outreaches, school talks and workshops. With a network of 245 members, BodyTalk has reached over 2300 AGYW since December 2017.
