HUMANITARIAN INTERNATIONAL DESIGN ORGANISATION USES PLAY TO EDUCATE
The organisation is
currently designing an educational game to help young children in
Africa, mainly Kenya to explain what puberty is. This game will be a
teaching tool to break the taboo concerning menstruation and to explain
the importance of sanitary towels. HIDO's aim is to reduce early
pregnancies, to decrease the transfer of HIV/AIDS and other sexual
transmitted diseases and to increase African girls attending school.
The Humanitarian International Design Organisation engages designers in creating products or systems for those in need, to improve their lives. If you would like to get involved or to support their work, please visit www.humanidesign.org.
