CTAOP  The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project invests in African youth to keep themselves safe from HIV


HUGE congrats to CTAOP grantee HIVSA's @choma_mag for taking home the gold for "The Best Social Media Campaign" at the New Generation Social and Digital Media Awards in Johannesburg last week! What a deserved honor! 🙌🏆

The conference room of @salesian_life_choices is a beautiful photo gallery filled with images taken by young people. Students were supplied with a basic camera and a simple question "How do you see your community?" These photos represent their answers... Photo by @leigh_page1 .

The Choma Dreams Cafés, rolled out by CTAOP grantee HIVSA are intended to provide vulnerable adolescent girls and young women with HIV prevention and social asset building programmes in safe, fun, girl-friendly and new ways. The Choma Dreams Cafés aim to empower young women by providing a girl friendly space with HIV prevention, economic strengthening, the connectivity of an internet café and the resources of a community centre. We finally got to see one in action at Push in Kliptown, South Africa.

Today we visited Small Projects Foundation (SPF) & Department of Social Responsibility (DSR) /@helpastudent15.
At SPF we we were welcomed into an open dialogue led by young woman and girls with community leaders and service providers which aims to identify challenges faced by young women and girls, identify priorities and develop action plans to address such challenges.
Later we popped in to see a youth leader gathering organized by @helpastudent15 where 5 youth leaders from each school in the area came together to share learnings and ideas.

The best possible welcome from Small Projects Foundation

@salesian_life_choices we explored some of the ways that CTAOP's supported programs are helping promote youth dignity. Life Choice's programs give young people CHOICES (per their name) and independence - not charity. We were lucky enough to take a tour of the new beautiful academy, visit a coding class, meet with two young entrepreneurs who are just getting their businesses off the ground and had a "getting to know you" session with some of the young learners. We also explored the areas where Life Choices is currently working including visiting a mobile clinic and high school.

A big, ATOMIC thank you to everyone who came out tonight to support CTAOP's @imax.movies screening of @atomicblondemovie! We truly couldn't do our work without your support!

Meet new CTAOP grantee @agahozoshalom - The Agahozo Shalom Youth Village (ASYV) is a residential community for secondary school youth in Rwamagana, Rwanda that combines family, education, healthcare, and enrichment to foster emotional and intellectual growth. CTAOP’s pilot grant aims to enable young people, especially girls, to find their own solutions to gender inequality and HIV/AIDS through empowerment and adolescent health services. This is the first project of its kind in Rwanda and has the potential to inform policy around sexual and reproductive health and rights. | photo by @agahozoshalom

Meet @dramaforlifewits: CTAOP is the lead funder for the ambitious DRAMA FOR LIFE (DFL) 'Knowledge Unzipped’ which is designed to combine UCLA’s successful @uclasexsquad program with DFL's existing arts-based programming. This project engages youth and communities in a health program rooted in local context and culture.  They harness the power of personal storytelling, peer to peer relationships, and arts as a language to break down walls, reduce stigma, and start honest community dialogues around sex, gender, and the complicated social environment that South African teens face today.

For the past three years CTAOP grantee, @salesian_life_choices (a Cape Town-based social enterprise), has celebrated South Africa’s National Youth Month with a ‘30 Stories in 30 Days’ campaign. This June, Life Choices will continue their tradition and share a different young person’s story each day to highlight the resilience and power of youth.
You can show your solidarity with youth by joining the #YChallenge - Step 1) Take a picture or video of yourself in the shape of a Y (symbolizing youth), Step 2) In a few words, tell the world “Why you believe in youth", Step 3) Post on social media, using #YChallenge and TAG @salesian_life_choices. “Y” not?

Meet Small Projects Foundation: CTAOP supports Small Projects Foundation (SPF), a community program that operates in the Eastern Cape - one of the areas most in need in South Africa. SPF reaches young people in multiple ways with the combination of sexual and reproductive health education in schools, job training workshops for youth, peer education, community outreach, and adolescent-friendly health services training for clinic staff. | Photo by @leigh_page1
