Happy Valentine's Day 2018 from Newzbeat!

With more open talk we cut down on stigma
around adolescent sexuality in Uganda.
We communicate better with our partners
and create equality between genders.

True, it takes care and good communication
and I know where we can get this education.
Check out Chicken and Chips, season 2
this pop culture production can give us a clue.

#Powahall Campaign is Lighting up Bidi Bidi Camp

Lady Slyke: Uganda hardly has the resources and facilities
to support all these refugees.
One major challenge is light and electricity
but this is changing at the hands of Esteeri.

Esteeri Kabonero was raised in America.
She worked in Rwanda then returned to Uganda.
She wanted to help with the refugee situation,
her heart was moved by the terrible conditions.
