Avert is partnering with VSO to develop the life skills component of their EAGLE project to empower low literacy girls in Mozambique. Avert is developing a tablet-based app with learning modules on essential life skills for adolescent girls, such as healthy relationships and preventing pregnancy. The girls engaged in co-creation workshops and user testing throughout the app development process to ensure it is easy to navigate and tailored to their needs. To suit the limited literacy of the users, the app has no written content and instead uses audio, videos, and slideshows. The app is in Ndau, the language spoken locally.
We are delighted to have Avert partner with us on the EAGLE project. They have been able to help us think through how to develop a digital approach to reaching our target girls who would normally not have access to digital projects. Avert have expertise in creating tailored content for specific audiences on HIV and sexual and reproductive health and have ensured that the EAGLE girls have been involved throughout the process to develop a new Life Skills app for them.
