Olabode commented on Stories Behind My Skin (SBMS)

We would create a website which will serve as story-telling platform where individuals who have once suffered from the condition or currently suffering from the condition share their experience including challenges they faced (bullying, stigma etc), the world they envision and also how they survived the social and psychological issues associated with the condition. Millions of people would share their experiences. This story-telling platform will create a collective community of people who have either survivors or currently suffering from the skin conditions where they can share ideas, discuss and even network in the safe spaceo. These stories will j also be shared on different social media platforms created specially for our solution. We would also create an offline platform which will involve organizing outreaches to schools, workplaces, parent/teachers association and religious places where we will educate them about atopic dermatitis. This will be done through the use of videos, posters and pamphlets. 'We will ,share videos; of survivors and people currently suffering from atopic dermatitis wherei they share their stories. We would also be distributing pamphlets that contain 20 reported stories of individuals who are either survivors or living with it

This curriculum also have elements of sexual and reproductive health education issues and topics. It's something we do already at The WiseUp Initiative and ensuring that every woman lives an healthy and dignifying life is what we live for
