Wishing The Palette Fund’s Co-founder and President, Terrence Meck, a Happy Birthday.
"On February 14th, the Children’s Radio Foundation’s Future Positive Youth Reporters hosted a Loving Myself radio outreach event to celebrate Valentine’s Day at Nolungile Youth Clinic in Khayelitsha. Hundreds of youth from all over Cape Town, Future Positive youth participants from five community-based organizations, doctors and clinic staff, and guest performers attended the 3-hour event. Highlights of the day included live debates, dance competitions, motivational talks, quizzes on HIV, prize givings, and performances by Jazzart Dance Theatre. The aim of the event was to engage with youth on the topic of self love and HIV/AIDS, amidst the challenging realities of growing up in Khayelitsha. Through their live broadcast, the Future Positive reporters challenged young people to think about existing norms around sexual orientation, and to express their opinions on the topic. It was a lively dialogue, and the event was a huge success! Young people filled the clinic participating in the activities and energizing the clinic space. Creating a youth-friendly clinic environment is key to youth accessing HIV services consistently, and is also one of the larger objectives of the project.”
When 18 year-old Koketso Seshoka would listen to DJs on his local community radio station, he knew he wanted to be one of them. Now he’s a youth reporter for the #Children’s Radio Foundation.
