we honoured the invitation of a social group immediately after the campaign because more than half of its members are commercial bike riders. We are particularly interested in this group because they are young people and part of the reason for high risky sexual behaviour.

we had a stormy meeting with this group and recorded a high level of resistance which gave us insights into an angle we were neglecting in the campaign. We are thinking of having a common platform with both boys and girls to discuss on how to respect one another in relationships. This could be a workshop for a day or two.

How many people have you impacted since your last update?

I am amazed at your tenacity! More courage and faith in your cause for women's safety and health. I like that you target the men,too, and make them partners in  this endeavor.

yeah it will be better to meet with female and male separately before having a general engagement that is if it becomes necessary. if not meeting them separately works more because of gender. what is applicable to male is /or may not be applicable for the female. you are really hardworking and smart converting every opportunity to impact. keep it up. its worth it

Great.  Involving all stakeholders.  I like the fact that you are working on solving the problem by including those who are resistant.  It gives a lot of perspective and opens up possibilities. You are doing the hard work of going beyond the surface. Awesome work
