The goal of this project is to create a female empowerment app which spreads awareness among the preadolescent girls on sensitive issues like reproductive health, teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections and low self esteem. It is and educational app which will help the young girls in taking decisions when such situations arise in life. To address this issue, PowerUp uses Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) to empower middle school girls to take ownership of their health and sexual activity. The proposal is to create a mobile application that will incorporate quality and relevant information surrounding self-esteem and reproductive health, and will offer interactive activities to help concertize corresponding concepts through a choose-your-own-adventure game that puts preadolescent girls in the driver’s seat, making their own decisions to learn about reproductive health and self-esteem.
