WEBSITES / NEWS: UNICEF supported projects in Somalia

Website development: The UNICEFsupported website for Somali youth
(www.hellosomaliyouth.net) is up and running with input from youth in
different parts of Somalia.

Youth broadcasting: Video programmes produced by members of youth groups
under the youth broadcasting initiative were distributed to video parlours.
The productions cover issues including HIV/AIDS, female genital cutting,
immunization, polio eradication, hygiene and sanitation, cholera prevention,
breastfeeding, girl education and malaria prevention.

KOOR Editors meeting: Young editors from different locations came together
in Hargeisa to prepare the next edition of KOOR, a youth magazine, which
features young people's voices and concerns. A five day HIV and AIDS
training followed the meeting, where the the editors learned new information
on HIV prevention, treatment, care and support - and how to report about it.
