Continuation of the work of MKI in South Africa by Health[e]Foundation
The board of HealtheFoundation and the board of the Medical Knowledge Institute (MKI) decided to work on a common plan in which HealtheFoundation will continue the work of Stichting MKI in South Africa. With funding of € 250.000 the planned activities of HealtheFoundation will focus on provision of training for teachers on health-related topics for communities, a training program dedicated to inform South African youth on Health[e]Living.
Twelve to sixteen year olds will be educated in nutrition, gender roles, safe sex, contraception and safe abortion, addiction, healthy body and life skills. Like all programs of HealtheFoundation the program will follow the concept of blended learning, a combination of on-site and online training, in order for teachers to be able to reach out to as many youngsters as possible.
The activities will start in 2014 in the Western Cape in collaboration with the Desmond Tutu Health Foundation and extended to the Gauteng province in 2015.
