i was. going to have. so creative nancy come up with a sexual health. the sets off on a research trip. she's heading northeast towards johannesburg a city where it's been estimated that about one hundred. posts here. and then so and so despite the poverty ninety nine one hundred households have access to a mobile phone. she wants to find out if a life up could help with issues like aids teenage pregnancy and other sexual health issues. it won't prove easy. so i'm trying to find out you know by now what are some of the things that a bank would run to and says from the phone sabo that's house who needs it why why you have to sleep me with the three weeks out of the month that lead to good
12:37 pm
things up with the big assembly. i meant that you guys were taught the point of words and what you did to the man when you when you can't do it not that i did that the next lesson that i did is that you you're getting to know the person you're getting to know maybe it's not even a conscious decision what the our actual decision indaba the women he meets researching up a little more helpful a lot of it all somehow infected or affected by serious viruses that comes through social. engagement on the stand so with that said so from a chair car especially with young pupils and nobody to age pregnancy is high beside clearly people don't don't protect or don't use protection or don't see the need to use protection why is that like it's not like us until you say see right now because if things like teenage pregnancy were to be educational that simmers
12:38 pm
frequences be i say show yeah maybe really do you like to help my son see need guidance of a career have. a life i could offer guidance on sexual health the question is how many you have you know and for inspiration the steps in my local internet cafes to say how can i help you tune in and surrounded by computer literate kids about nuns in knows they now access the internet through smart phones as well as laptops and internet cafes many young people still use s.m.s. or text messaging nun's he wants to know what's the best way of building a sexual health crisis how can one actually build the application that would best meets your requirements is the way you see a tweet it comes to you six when it comes to health when it comes to excess of information in that regard traditionally you know and there's some as you took the
12:39 pm
train to to get is nancy's got lucky. the cafe owner is trying to develop an app that collects text messages about sexual health and lets people share them it. goes to people so you can create. a mobile application for the whole community sure you know so that showing it can be able to manage its own health issues you know it can see how many. people who have went through this i mean if you prefer to conclude you know people are getting better show they're one of those kind of thing . by the whole community to not only. call blown away scientists it was idea is to help spread health information by a kind of extra nic word of mouth how do you see things his idea could form the basis of our own life communicating sexual health messages but there's a long way to go so let's connect with skype and then we can take this conversation
12:40 pm
and then just let's elaborate more on the word like the awful bow and access to information and around i've been bastardized how we can actually empower them using a form from what i was at and watching presently doing with that whole house and you have all the future of this is. thank you so much that i know none of these life up he's clearly going to need much more way. it's a mission she's still working on. nuns is convinced technology can empower young people not just in the developing countries but the world over. london a twenty first century world city close to the skyscrapers of its financial elites lies shoreditch london's creative digital. and digital incubates up and design a heaven. it's all about young people developing new ideas making money
12:41 pm
and also doing good including with the mobile phone. often is a very powerful tool i can empower people around the world and using mobile phone technology to solve problems in one's local community can be a great way to create change difference rather than one leading charity showing how mobiles can be used for good is c.d.i. the center for digital inclusion based in brazil but with a branch here in shortage these years of the program is called out and it's about inspiring young people to become problem solvers for getting them to think through person what is their problem and they look community and how can they so they're losing money for all technology. absolute good are now working with fifty thousand young people across britain creating mobile social and web apps. so we're trying to
12:42 pm
create generation problem solvers and that young people can get the skills they need to actually understand what the technology is not just consuming technology that's a definitely not about money games are about solving a problem and here sounds huge commercial and she out there tearing it up but the main thing that we advocate. is that getting young people interested in the fast pace and being part of my pop kind of me is really important. job so good sats once an hour and a walking on a stop and satch app people from ethnic minorities are two times more likely to be stopped by the police than white people the app documents and uploads a user's experiences when they're stopped by the police. so i have been sourcing such before obviously coming hours telesales just next to brixton i supply a lot of people in the databases and always for the right reason as well to me so
12:43 pm
a lot of times when i was stopped and still used to kind of fix myself is direct proceed to the caribbean not on my even allowed to be stopped today so tonight i mean so. not having that knowledge just kind of put me in a position where i despair a bit disempowered in that situation so the stuff i said shout was a trade in two thousand and ten going to help people know what they're right so we need to stop he said but it put a piece in a quick and easy way once you've downloaded that. you click into it tells you what you can do and say or why you might be stopped and searched when you can down the road or when you're in a vehicle and you've got a section for the top of the sea as well because a lot of reporters and stuff like the issues are in the film and stuff yourself and so if you all stuck to what you have to do just upload your experience and that consists of basically putting your age in. your six and then
12:44 pm
just like you to put in the offices by two number you stopped and searched you in this stuff and such that number if you get one or so after that you just basically break how you feel you were treated by the offices and there's like a set criteria of questions here such as how badly do you think the reason was for the stop and search and how much respect do you feel. we're showing the stuff he said. and what are you doing with this and to talk to your notation like using the g.p.s. . so that you still don't assume just know that one hundred percent in the city so the database and sure experience that. ops for good are now working with four hundred schools across the u.k. . one of the first to enroll was east london central foundation girls school.
