Project details / Health[e]Living Uganda

About this project

The Health[e]Living project in Uganda started in 2016. The blended training model is used to implement our course: Health[e]Living. The project consists of consecutive training programs, each lasting three months. The training program starts with a kick-off workshop and is followed by a three month self-study period. During this period, participants study the informative e-modules on a tablet and practice the interactive learning activities that are described in the program with adolescents in their community. During the self-study period, participants are encouraged to interact with their peers and to seek e-tutor support via their personalized e-learning account, email or WhatsApp. Following the self-study period, a two-day workshop takes place: the course is evaluated; participants present the activities they conducted within their community; and new activities are planned for the following period. Every training group consists of 30-35 participants, who have to reach out to at least 35 adolescents in their community. Each training program is evaluated and, if necessary, content is adapted or developed to improve the course for the next training program. An in-depth impact evaluation is performed by the beneficiaries of the project: the adolescents.

Who is this project for

Community workers, educators, social workers and peer-educators in Uganda who work with adolescents.

Aim of the project

The program aims to increase knowledge and improve didactic/educational skills to guide participants in providing basic health, life skills and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) education; and to strengthen their outreach activities to adolescents and young people. The goal is to contribute to a healthy future for young people. From 2016 until 2019, the project aims to educate 160 participants and reach out to at least 5,600 adolescents.
