And Man Up campaign begins

In South Africa with three other Ugandan youth to take part in a campaign on violence against women. We are not alone, we are together with other youth from other African states and North and South America.

It’s  first global summit during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, bringing together a diverse group of men and women (ages 18 to 30 years) from 50 countries.  Man Up Campaign works directly with UNIFEM, international and grassroots NGOs and key stakeholders from the sport and entertainment communities to engage youth. 

Interesting topics lined up among them, Using football as a peacebuilding tool, using music and theatre for social change, Fundamentals of  Technology and social change. More can be found  www.manupcampaign.org.

I will be passing on interesting arguments and thoughts from the discussions. The whole idea is the use of music, art and sport to increase awareness on violence agains women.
