KP creators involved


Dance4life works with young people together for a healthy future; for themselves, their environment and the rest of the world. Together with local partners, Dance4life informs them about sexual health and rights. They engage young people with a positive approach through dance, music and personal stories. Together with young people, they focus on influencing parents, teachers and governments for a society where young people can make healthy choices regarding sex and are able to receive the healthcare they deserve. This is done through education in schools, using music and dance to involve and inspire young people. The initiative is active in almost 20 countries, spread over 5 continents.
