Bloggers Unite: International Youth Day Post

Tomorrow is International Youth Day, a day that gives the world an opportunity to recognize the potential of youth, to celebrate their achievements, and plan for ways to better engage young people to successfully take action in the development of their societies.

In line with this, I'm posting a video which highlights the challenges girls in Southern Africa face. Entitled: Girls At Risk, A Discussion Tool, this video is made up of excerpts from five films in the UNTOLD series, the largest locally developed HIV & AIDS prevention communication campaign in Africa. The initiative also aimed to build a community of regional writers and film-makers.

Countries that took part in the UNTOLD initiative are Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Mozambique, Malawi, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. (Click on each country to view scenes from each film).
