In 2021, a pilot health education initiative was rolled out in 10 primary schools across the project area, which combined the gender-inclusive sport of volleyball with reproductive health education. This afterschool program reached over 1,200 students, was implemented by a team of 6 local volunteers and focused on a variety of subjects including gender-based violence, female health, STIs and HIV. A second phase of this program launched in 2022, focussed on an older cohort of children in their mid-teens.
