OYO to tackle teenage pregnancy
The Ombetja Yehinga Organisation Trust (OYO), officially launched their 2016 program on 11 February at the Goethe Centre, with a two piece choreographed by Dr Philippe Talavera, ‘the Moirai’ and ‘teacher’. Their theme this year is ‘Teenage Pregnancy’, which aims to educate Namibia about the ills of teenage pregnancy. To emphasise on this theme the Troupe performed ‘teacher’, it drove home the message that teenage pregnancy is a big problem in the country and that we should come together as a nation to solve the problem. OYO works with young people to target social issues through writing, drama, dance, music and visual arts. Dr Philippe Talavera (middle) with the OYO Dance Troupe. (Photograph by Mandisa Rasmeni).
