Beatrice Achieng Nas, Behavior Change Materials for Portland School Uganda

Rural schools in Tororo, Uganda, often fail to provide their students with knowledge on personal hygiene, sexual health and environmental protection and as a result there are an influx of illnesses, increased rates of early age pregnancies, poor waste management, clear cutting trees and a rapid spread of HIV. Beatrice Achieng Nas has created the Behavior Change Materials for Portland School Uganda project, intended to improve lives through the creation of sustainable materials that communicate healthy practices. With support from The Pollination Project, the behavior change will go beyond the schools and to the parents and entire community, creating a positive impact for generations to come.
