[Podcast] Dreams Thina Abantu Abasha

This morning on the Feel Good Breakfast Show, Bright Ntengo hosted two members of Dreams Thina Abantu Abasha.

Ayanda Mbatha and Nkosinathi Hadebe came in studio to share what their organisation is about and what it stands for. Dreams Thina Abantu Abasha is an HIV prevention programme, it aims to empower young girls between the ages of 14-24 years. It equips them with leadership skills, employability skills, sexual and reproductive health. 

“Dreams Thina Abantu Abasha was launched after Johnson and Johnson’s discovered that young people in one of the programmes called dreams suggested to have something that is for young people by young people then they partnered with UNFPA to create Dreams Thina Abantu Abasha that provides young people with these skills,” explained Nkosinathi.  Dreams Thina Abantu

Ayanda and Nkosinathi told us how their programme teaches these young girls to start leading themselves and in their communities. When it comes to employability, “we’ve noticed that one of the reasons why young people are not employed is because they can’t write proper CVs, so we also focus on how to write proper CVs and also interview skills,” Ayanda said.

Their main focus is to promote the use of condoms, and share knowledge on the different contraceptives available for girls. The programme is available in EThekwini District, uMgungundlovu. uMsunduzi and uMhlwathi District. The Dreams Thina Abantu Abasha programme will be coming back comRadioDUT
