Young people develop software apps about reproductive health

To commemorate 100 years of work, Save the Children, last week, collaborated with Lulu Lab to organize a four-day workshop on application development for over 40 young people 13-24 years. Joshua Yarjah is an Information Technology student at Limkokwing University. He was excited about the exercise, noting that the discussion on game development through group work to address sexual reproductive health is a good move to improve the sex lives of young people. The computer application development focused on reproductive health, especially teenage pregnancy. Communications Officer, Save the Children, Bridget Lewis, explained the session was informal; experience sharing and gaining knowledge in order to let participants feel free to express themselves, as they go about developing different apps to be installed and used, as games on their iPads, and tablets. “The apps will be used for networking among the 40 participants to reduce the burden of increased teenage pregnancy and also information that will make them know about their body better.”
