Sara Communication Initiative
The Sara Communication Initiative was developed in 10 countries of Eastern and Southern Africa, with UNICEF assistance. Educating adolescent girls and their parents about the importance of staying in school is one of the main messages of this lively radio series. Other issues such as sexual harassment, HIV/AIDS, early marriage, genital mutilation and girls' domestic workload, are skilfully woven into the entertaining plots about Sara and her friends. In addition to the radio series, the initiative has developed animated films, comic books, storybooks, audiocassettes, posters and guides.
