Aavaa is a sex education initiative for Persian-speaking children and teenagers that uses book readings, videos and social media to provide age-appropriate information on bodies, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. It also provides resources for people who are in contact with children, such as parents and teachers. We're sending them US$3,000 to fund ten new videos.

If you live in an English-speaking country, it's easy to take access to this kind of information for granted, but for millions of young people in northern Africa and the Middle East, these conversations are only just getting started. Thanks to all of you for making this possible, a little bit will go a long way here, helping this content reach hundreds of thousands of people.


Also... an update from Green Pedal in Mozambique, who you sent US$2,900 a year ago, to buy ten new water irrigation bikes. The bikes have arrived!
