Summary Description of your Organization
Youth Alive Zimbabwe is faith based organisation that is inter- denominational positive peer support organisation that works with young people in school and out of school as well as communities and traditional leadership. We are currently registered as a Trust and awaiting PVO number. Our target group ranges from children to young people aged 7 to 35 (according to the constitution) years of age. We conduct Lifeskills education, Behaviour Change workshops - Education for transformation, Sexual Reproductive Health Sessions, capacity Building which includes Leadership Training and Child Safeguarding. Our interventions seek to address the root cause of HIV, Sexual Reproductive Health, Child Safeguarding and other socio-economic challenges faced by young people in an age appropriate, participatory, practical and youth friendly manner. We help project clients to look at their present situation and draw out unique solutions. Age appropriate life skills and SRH education increases the chance of delaying sexual debut, reduce the frequency of risky sexual activity and the number of sexual partners. By giving young people the opportunity to receive correct information, learn how to live by their values, and acquire relationship skills we are enabling them to make the right choices and become responsible and respectful adults.
