On Saturday, 2nd July 2022, Women First Digital hosted influencers and organizations working in the SRHR space at Bintumani Hotel.
The event aimed to identify barriers to making SRHR information easily accessible online. Dr. Enu Otsyina, the Country Consultant of Women First Digital in Ghana, chaired the circle. Dr. Otsyina engaged the participants to promote better working relations and build a strategic road map concerning the work of Women First Digital in Sierra Leone. Eunice Naffie Mustapha, the Country Consultant of Women First Digital Sierra Leone, facilitated a dialogue on barriers to projecting ‘Digital Media’ as a change tool.
Present were influencers like Fantacee Wiz Kamara, Sarah Kallay, and Precious Jah-Tucker and organizations like Girls’ Plus (represented by Mrs. Asmaa James), Planned Parenthood Association of Sierra Leone, Transformative Women’s Initiative, Strong Girls Evolution, Prevention First Initiative, Men’s Up Initiative, and Strong Women Strong Girls. In attendance was also Kadijatu Barrie, who had presented the Youth Manifesto at the 10th Africa Conference on Sexual Health and Rights.
Barriers identified in using digital media as an advocacy tool in Sierra Leone included poor branding, collaborations, storytelling, expertise, content presentation, investment in marketing, and so much more.
Women First Digital’s 2022 cohort of volunteers, especially the programs team, were instrumental in planning the circle. As an organization, Women First Digital runs three websites: findmymethod.org, safe2choose.org, and pinkshoes.org. It intends to make SRHR information and education easily accessible online.
