OUR STORY

Bumb’ingomso is largely financed by the Federal Republic of Germany through KfW Development Bank. The DG Murray Trust (DGMT) is the executing agent and junior funding partner for the project on behalf of the South African National Department of Health (NDoH).

We are a multi-faceted development project combining behavioural, biomedical, social and economic interventions in an effort to reduce the number of young women infected with HIV in Buffalo City.

Bumb'ingomso was officially launched in October 2016, the project will run for a three year period across 18 wards in the Buffalo City metro.

BEHAVIOR CHANGE AND COMMUNICATION

BEHAVIOR CHANGE AND COMMUNICATION

Bumb'ingomso has established an aspirational leadership network that builds a sense of ownership and connects young women to opportunities.

Creating environments that enable young women to thrive is crucial strategy for the project. We seek to mobilize and engage communities around issues that affect the wellbeing of young people.

Through the first two key strategies we hope to create a demand for services and we have established response mechanisms to increase access and utilization of services.

HEALTH SERVICE INTERVENTION

HEALTH SERVICE INTERVENTION

Effective health services enable young people to make informed choices about their bodies and sexual health. The Bumb'ingomso project aims to increase metro-wide access to youth friendly services. Our goal is get all 77 public health facilities in Buffalo City capacitated to strengthen youth friendly services.

Also, improve the experience of sex workers seeking health services by providing accessible environments.

We also want to effectively capture the right information on young people access public health care. We collaborate with the Department of Health to implement a data based system that will provide information on young people moving through the public health system.

EXPANDED ACCESS TO ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES

EXPANDED ACCESS TO ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES

We empower young people through improving their access to information about available opportunities and how to access these opportunities.

Through our opportunity hub, young people will access vocational skills training and work readiness programmes that prepare them for the world of work.

Aligned with this goal, we focus on stimulating labour market change. Simply, facilitating an environment that will enable the absorption of young people into economic opportunities.
