We all know February is the month of love and at Reach A Hand we believe you can’t separate love from Sexual and Reproductive Health. And this year we are running an online campaign #LoveDontHurt tailored to create awareness on sexual and reproductive health, in line with relationships among the youth.
Using the #LoveDontHurt, on all online social media platforms we hope the campaign engage the public especially the young people to talking about and raise awareness on issues of condom use and HIV prevention, something for something love and cross generational sex that they face in their day to day life in sexaul relationships.
The campaign will start on Tuesday 10th February to go on till the end of February, the month of love as we celebrate Valentine’s Day. All our social media platforms including Facebook pages (SautiPlus and Reach a Hand) and Twitter @REACHAHAND and @SAUTIPlus will be sharing information in line with the campaign during this period. Our tech savvy peer educators will be blogging as well giving insights on these issues and how they affect young people.
A tweet up session will be hosted at our offices on Valentine’s Day with Peer Educators and online influencers having a Q&A with New Vision’s “Dr. Love”- Hilary Bainemigisha. You’re welcome to follow and join in the the tweet up session conversation using the hashtag #LoveDontHurt. Let’sraise awareness further on issues young people face while in relationships in and let’s empower them to make free and informed choices regarding their sexuality.
We have short interactive, argumentative, yet informative podcasts recorded by our Peer Educators together with other youth that will leave you wondering what the right stand on the topic is, empowering you with the right information to make the right choice when it comes to relationship.
Let’s take these #LoveDontHurt conversation on social media and you never know you may be a lucky winner of our gift hampers and movie tickets.
The campaign is under our Sautipus project that is funded by RutgersWPF.
