Views: 505

One World UK has launched an e-learning based tool based on the Nigerian Family Life and HIV/AIDS Education (FLHE) school curriculum, called 'Learning about Living' in collaboration with Education as a Vaccine against AIDS (EVA).

The programme, Learning about Living is also supported by MTN Foundation and National Agency for AIDS Control (NACA). The programme aims to use ICT to educate young people on issues like sexual health, prevent HIV/AIDS and maternal mortality and gender violence. In the second phase, the programme aims to improve information on sex education and other issues. The Learning about Living programme has two information services: MyQuestion and 'MyAnswer'. MyQuestion allows young people to ask questions through text messages, online or using a telephone line. While the second service, My Answer is competition where young people have the opportunity of winning prizes by answering a monthly question. MyAnswer aims to engage and motivate young people to learn and reflect on various issues, and it will produce ten winners picked each month amongst the accurate entries to win airtime.
