Project ID 501RAF1002

The project Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future (O3 Plus) will ensure that young people in higher and tertiary education institutions in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) realize positive health, education and gender equality outcomes through sustained reductions in new HIV infections, unintended pregnancy and gender based violence. The project will thus enable them to reach their full educational potential and contribute more effectively to the development of their countries and region as graduates, professionals and young leaders.
