DramAide has four major projects which are as follows:
Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Demand Creation
The VMMC demand creation is an overarching strategy that brings together different stakeholders in a concerted and combined effort. There are VMMC Community Mobilizers that are employed by DramAidE through community based organizations to undertake community activations such as door-to-door, presentations in schools and community events, men-to-men sessions, condom distribution, group session workshops, register and refer potential male clients to health services. The project is underway in uMkhanyakude, Zululand, eThekwini, and uGu districts including tertiary institutions in South Africa.
Women and Girls Sexual and Reproductive Health
The project seeks to improve the maternal and child health outcomes by providing information about sexual and reproductive health and linking women and girls to health services in South Africa. The project intervention combines the use of social mobilization, advocacy and communication together with health systems strengthening to improve access to quality of SRH services, including family planning (FP) within communities in KwaZulu-Natal.
National Health Promoters working HEAIDS
The project partners with 23 Higher Education Institution campuses in South Africa. It is spearheaded by Health Promoters (young people living openly with HIV), recruited and trained to conduct interactive workshops and campaigns on the prevention of HIV and also address issues relating gender based violence, unhealthy sexual practices and promote positive living, testing for HIV and treatment literacy on their campuses.
Act Alive Comprehensive Health Program
The aims of the project is to initiate and sustain a communication process that develops the capacity of schools to create a healthy physical, emotional and spiritual environment in which children can live, learn and play. To achieve its aims, the project seeks to facilitate critical awareness and transfer of skills of child abuse, substance abuse, psycho-social support, sexual education, and HIV/TB among children and youth out of school. This project is underway in 35 primary schools Mbonambi, Sokhulu, and Mkhwanazi and Dube traditional authorities.
The Travelling play consists of a mobile theatre group that is toured in schools, community events, tertiary institutions and industries. The play makes use of participatory forum theatre techniques that provide opportunities for people to get involved in an interactive discussion in a fun, non-threatening way. The travelling play focuses its messages around Gender Based Violence, HIV/TB, Environment, Family Planning, PMTCT, Child Abuse and Substance abuse.
