Z-Club of Childlink produces Digital Video to Advocate Against Adolescent Pregnancy


The highlight of this year’s UN Day Observance was the presentation of the digital video production of the song “Childhood, not Motherhood”. This composition, by Grade 9 Z Club members, was the winner of the storyboard competition on early child marriage launched among the high school classes of Childlink High School during the school year 2020-2021. The song expresses the struggle girls go through to fight early marriage, their freedom to choose and be treated equally and their plea for help fight and end this bad dream.

As the high school students worked on the digital video it was necessary for them to read and research on the extent, causes, perils and disadvantages of adolescent pregnancy. The animated video is a useful tool to disseminate information using a social media platform that young people can relate to and are familiar with.
