Young LGBTIQQ In Africa Join Peace and Anti COVID-19 Campaigns Using Unique Approaches
They are using their spaces to participate in efforts to contribute to self and the development of their society. They are doing it in a unique or as they want to put it,
"in a way they feel involved, to contribute to a better world."
They found time to interrogate how best they could present their youthful vigour at an international panel.
This is how they describe themselves:
"We planned debated, discussed, tried out this and that. Finally a format was created. When we bring our heads together things work out better.
We are able to identify what has to be done by whom and when. Team work supports collective input. Join us for a "Changing the Story" Film Festival.
We have put up activities on our pages. We are showcasing ways to participate in fulfilled life experiences as well as uniting with Africa against COVID-19.
We have various activities going on and this Film Festival is one of them. Soon we shall launch COVID-19 LOSER- a digital campaign as a Hackathon.
We hope you will be part of our campaigns. Africa must come together to fight against disinformation and encourage respect for the people so that all barriers put in place to counter the COVID-19 pandemic are broken.
With more than 100,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the continent and relaxed containment measures in many countries, Africa COVID-19 LOSER Campaign is what combines skills development, IEC development and augmented reality to formulate action catalyst tools.
Join us on our pages and invite your friends too!"
Please be part of this effort. See how they are animating life to such an extent that they were nominated at the Official Selection of the Changing the Story Online International Film Festival 2020.
On Wednesday, catch a captivating selection of films about youth, resistance and freedom. You’ll see films about the devastating impact of war and the trials and tribulations of transitioning from youth to adulthood.
See first-hand how youth and communities are resisting oppression, discrimination and violence, and how and why peaceful resistances take the form that they do in particular contexts around the world. The films refer to or depict topics you may find upsetting, such as sexual abuse, slavery, child abuse, self-harm or suicide, kidnapping or abduction, death or dying, hateful language directed at marginalised groups.
