To develop and strengthen corpo-emotional empathy for girls and boys between 10-14 years of age.
Tell us about your vision for this project: Share one sentence about the impact you would like to see from this project in five years
By 2022, we want to disseminate the contents of Corporate Maps in Latin American countries with high risks in terms of SRH; and we want the app included in the sexual education curriculums of 100% of classrooms of 10-14 year olds in Colombia's Public School System.
Who will implement this idea? Or what’s your strategy to implement in the next 6-18 months?
To make Corporal Maps a reality, 3 Bogotá based companies joined efforts in a partnership:
ILA, will be in charge of the strategic and financial planning, institutional partnerships and operational coordination. 4 full-time staff.
LEVER will be in charge of ideation, testing and prototyping. 3 part-time staff.
OUT OF THE BLU will be in charge of creative content generation for the app and its dissemination in Colombia and LatAm. 3 part-time staff.
To reach our vision, we plan to:
-Ideate, test and refine with rough prototypes
-Develop and test digital version of app
-Institutional partnership agreements
How has your idea changed based on feedback?
In a circular design environment, contents may impact our target age through different mediums. Corporal Maps can expand beyond a digital app (flashcards, web series, comics, etc).
Stories, decision cards, corpo emotional colors.
Fieldwork with corporal emotions, stories and decision cards.
Introducing Corporal Maps material with boys and girls.
Data and analytics will provide valuable information for decision-makers such as: government and cooperation funds. It is definitely a tool that helps children make better SRH decisions and empower them to claim their rights at this critical age range that determines how they'll behave in the future.
Using a human-centered design approach, you may uncover insights that lead to small or foundational changes to your organization’s existing strategy or processes in order to unlock the potential of your idea. How would your organization go about making such changes?
We believe that real social impact will always imply constant change.
Our process begins with an iteration model where our ideas are tested and co-created with real user feedback. Then we share our diverse points of view (philosophers, industrial designers, anthropologists, sociologists, and communications experts) and collectively decide which is the best solution, always keeping in mind our end users. For complex decisions, we analyze: viability, feasibility and sustainability.
How long have you been working on the project?
What year was your organization or group started?
How many full time staff are needed to implement your idea?
What most attracted you to the UNFPA Young People's Sexual and Reproductive Health Challenge?
In a society where children's bodies are objectified and sexuality is based on distorted cultural stereotypes, the most vulnerable population has little to no access to quality and personalized tools that help them make better decisions concerning their SRH rights. We believe that Corporal Maps will contribute to breaking cycles of poverty in Latin America caused by teenage pregnancy, gender inequality, lack of education, and violence and abuse.

What specific problem(s) are you trying to address? (300 character limit)
In Bogotá, each day a baby is born to a mother who is between 10-14 years old. Sexual education, particularly the recognition that emotional and corporal changes occur during preadolescence, is not reaching boys and girls in clear, direct, interesting or non-judgmental ways.
What are some of your unanswered questions about the problem(s) you are working to address? (500 character limit)
How can you align messages about reproductive and sexual health among parents, teachers and other significant adults?
How can you prevent religious teachings becoming an obstacle to boys and girls learning about their bodies?
How do you incorporate an understanding of the hormonal processes that normally occur during preadolescence into specific functions of different body parts?
How do we scale it and make it appropriable for other communities around the world?
Who are your end users? (1000 character limit)
Preadolescent girls and boys between the ages of 10-14 at public schools in Bogota at the following marginalized locations: Engativa (20 schools), Bosa (30 schools), Kennedy (50 schools), and Ciudad Bolivar (50 schools).
Corporal maps at fieldwork.
Kids at fieldwork.
We made a fieldwork with 45 girls and boys where we identified the following unsatisfied needs:
Teachers doesn´t have any didactic materials which they can work with on preadolescents everyday life.
The population under study doesn´t have any space where they can openly reflect their love and sexuality decisions.
The population under study doesn't have a reference of how the opposite sex feels after an interaction.
The population under study doesn't have a guide that allows them to understand what is the best way to approach the opposite sex.
User point of view: preadolescent girls and boys between the ages 10-14 need didactic tools that improves decision making regarding their interaction with the opposite sex and posible sexual relations.
Explain your idea. (500 character limit)
Corporal Maps are an educational yet fun tool that will allow teachers of girls and boys aged 10-14 to more easily explain physical transformations such as: a first ejaculation, growth of breasts, the appearance of pubic hair, voice changes, as well as the corresponding emotional facets brought on by those changes. By identifying body parts that have a strong correlation with sexuality, girls and boys will be able to interact with the emotions that emerge from daily situations.
User´s map step by step.
What is your value proposition? (500 character limit)
For preadolescent girls and boys between between ages of 10-14 at public schools in Engativá, Bosa, Kennedy and Ciudad Bolívar districts in the city of Bogotá, Corporal Maps is a system that allows children to learn and reflect about their body and emotions according to the situation in which they are with the opposite sex. It will give them not only the possibility of understanding others but making healthy, responsible and consensual choices.
What's different about your idea compared to current solutions? (500 character limit)
Since 2011, there have been several public education campaigns conducted in Bogota, which have included teaching and workshop materials, to address challenges related to sexual and reproductive health issues at the local level. These strategies have usually been of short duration and focused on media exposure. More importantly, none have included the connection between physical and emotional changes. Corporal Maps will be a valuable sexual and reproductive health communications tool for kids.
What are the key reasons why end users would turn to your organization over another?
Customization: Tailoring to specific needs
What would success look like for your end users? (500 character limit)
For preadolescents, informed and empowered girls and boys, confident of their bodies and their emotions, free of cultural and religious prejudices.
For families and schools and a greater systemic understanding of sex-gender relations that generate a clearer perspective of how biological differences between men and women have translated into social and economic inequalities.
For the world, a digital interactive platform scalable and adaptable for preadeolscents in other countries.
