Yesterday, on August 12, 2015, Young People Today teamed up with three amazing young people from across Eastern and Southern Africa for our first ever Twitter Takeover in honour of International Youth Day.

Kevin Karuga, Patrick Mwesigye and Nyasha Sithole took over our @YPTCampaign Twitter account to chat about young people’s right to comprehensive sexuality education and adequate access to youth friendly health services in Eastern and Southern Africa. These passionate young people from Kenya, Uganda and Zimbabwe, respectfully, are all leaders in their regions and are advocates for change and the ESA Commitment.

In case you missed the takeover, you can check out some of the highlights in the Storify below. Young people were engaging in discussions around increasing access to youth-friendly health services and comprehensive sexuality education, as well as the need for civic engagement.

A HUGE thank-you to Kevin, Patrick and Nyasha for their contributions, without their expertise, passion and dedication, this takeover would not have been possible!
