"We can Beat it!" Project
The "We can Beat it!" Project is an innovative life skills programme using the performing arts, drama, music and dance.
This comprehensive programme taking learners through intensive discussion groups, once a week. The content covers: Self-esteem, Sex & Sexuality, Changes in the Body, Healthy Relationships, HIV/AIDS and Gender Based Violence. Our peer educators use drumming, dance and drama, to keep the energy up and encourage open thinking and dialogue. They facilitate safe spaces were young people learn to trust each other, open up and think about solutions for issues they and their communities are facing.

Besides the school programme, RedZebra Foundation also runs weekly out of school workshops at a children’s home in Rondebosch and with vulnerable youth in Nyanga (a low imcome area outside of Cape Town). So for every night a guest stays at the lodge or guesthouse, Molololo helps RedZebra Foundation to cover the cost for these workshops. Thus assisting young people with their personal development, confidence, self-esteem and communication skills.

“The ‘We Can beat It’ campaign is comprehensive in addressing “Lifeskills” and “Sexual & Reproductive Health and Rights” issues for young people in South Africa. The roll out of the ‘We Can Beat it’ programme will assist the Department of Health in reaching our goals in the reduction of new HIV infections, teenage pregnancies and gender based violence.”

“Growing up for young people is very confusing, they have very few people of trust they can talk one it comes to sexuality and puberty. For most teenagers in my community, they can’t relate to their parents or teachers when it come to issues of puberty or romantic relationships. As RedZebra facilitators we create a safe space of not more than 12 young learners in one group at the school. By coming back every week and doing fun exercises using dance, drama and music we win involve the youth and establish trust. It is amazing how they open up, share their personal challenges and learn from each other and us. They would have hardly had a platform to share their challenges, ideas and discuss important issues if it was not for “WeCanBeatIt”. It really helps them to make better, informed choices when it comes to peer pressure and relationships.
