Hip-hop and Rap

+256 Youth Platform has a group of young hip-hop and rap artists who write, produce and perform songs on issues facing young people in their community, particularly sexual and reproductive health and rights issues. These songs are played on both local and national radio stations, national tv and on social media where they have a wide reach. The youth participate in and perform at outreaches both in schools and with out of school youth, events and at local youth centres. Every day the hip-hop members meet with over 50 youth in the community who access SRHR information through hip-hop.
