As part of efforts to reduce teenage pregnancies, HIV infections, and fight sexual and gender-based violence in the Central and Upper East Regions, CYIB-Curious Minds has embarked on the UNESCO O3: “Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future” initiative.

The O3: “Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future” initiative kick-started with the training of some school counselors, adolescent health focal persons, students from tertiary institutions in Cape-Coast, and young people in Asikuma Odoben Brakwa district in the Central Region.

The training seeks to build the capacity of young people in engaging their peers on adolescent reproductive health and rights in the Talensi district and Asikuma Odoben Brakwa district.

Similar training from the O3 project will be held in the Upper East Region starting with Bolgatanga.

According to Edmund Agbeve who is the O3 project lead at CYIB-Curious Minds,

“The aim of the training is to employ young people to become advocates to help reverse and halt the incidences of teenage pregnancies, unsafe abortions, and STIs in these regions.”

CYIB-CURIOUS MINDS, as an NGO that sets the agenda for young people in Ghana is supported by UNESCO and partners on the O3: “Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future” initiative.
