ZAPYTAJMNIE (ASK ME)
Kinga provided teenagers in Poland with a safe space to access factual information on contraception, family planning, sexually transmitted diseases, and pleasure - without judgment or religious interpretation. By highlighting young people's lack of and need for quality information, Kinga showed parents, educators, and policymakers that comprehensive sexuality education is crucial for young people to live happy, healthy, and productive lives.
Through her project, Kinga:
- Created a website that provided answers to 4,800 Polish teenagers' most common questions on sexual and reproductive health issues
- Produced infographics and animated videos that were viewed and shared easily through social media to raise awareness and bust myths about contraception
- Created an online quiz to help young people learn about the contraceptive methods that may be best for them
