Grant to study adolescents' perceptions of healthy relationships

The Oak Foundation has awarded a re-grant to the International Institute of Social Studies of the Adolescents' Perceptions of Healthy Relationships project.

The previous, 2-year project trained youth peer researchers aged 12-18 in Bulgaria and Tanzania to collect data from their age-mates on their views of various relationships with peers, families, and communities.

The new, one-year, €88,000 project enables ISS and its partners to retrain the young co-researchers in advocacy planning so that they can conduct their own advocacy campaign, disseminating their own research findings and making policy recommendations on improving relations in their communities.

Kristen Cheney is leading the project leader, while senior lecturer Auma Okwany and PhD researcher Annah Kamusiime also head up the Tanzania team.
