The project was organised by Reach A Hand, Uganda, a non profit youth led organization focused on youth empowerment programs with emphasis on #SRHR and HIV/AIDS awareness
The artiste spoke to youth on topics such as drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, rape, and peer pressure at the foundation’s 4th Annual Youth Camp dubbed #GetUpSpeakOut which attracted over 600 young people from Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia.
