Three years after completing the Health[e]Living program in Uganda, Health[e]Foundation is glad to still receive Positive Vibes from the program. Impact stories are shared by alumni participants who continue to use their tablets and training material for hosting informative and engaging sessions with young people and adolescents in their communities.
On the 4th of December 2021, the International Medical Centre (IMC) Kololo hosted the Positive Vibes event. Positive Vibes is an initiative, started by Dr. Sabrina Kitaka (consultant paediatrician), that brings together young people whose parents are clients to the IMC. During the event, young people engaged in educational sessions on drugs and substance use by Dr. Male Denis from the School of Public Health Makerere. Dr. Sabrina moderated a session on menstrual management. Finally, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) Master Trainer Hassan Sekajoolo, alumnus of Health[e]Foundations’ 2018 class, moderated the Fantasy vs. Reality activity from the Health[e]Living program where they engaged in interactive dialogue on statements regarding porn.
“Today, is another day when I use my tablet to engage with young people. I will be taking them through activity six worksheet on Fantasy vs. Reality. We had a good discussion on Fantasy vs. Reality under the module of safe sex! Bravo Health[e]Foundation!” – Hassan Sekajoolo, Health[e]Living Uganda 2018 class alumnus
Thank you, Hassan Sekajoolo, for sharing your impact story. We are wishing all alumni the best of luck with continuing to make positive change in their communities with (digital) education and information!
