As an animator and game developer, I want to bridge the gap between entertainment and data by harnessing the power of mobile games in the fight against HIV/AIDS among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW). My game will encourage AGYW to make the right decisions in life and pursue their endeavors.

Augment AGYW leadership and decision-making in the fight against HIV
Jilinde is a mobile game in which the main character is a young woman who must avoid obstacles that increase her chances of being infected with HIV. Along her path, she can also choose positive aspects that will make her life better. The game contains quizzes that introduce the player to more information about HIV/AIDS. The game is integrated with a website as well as a forum where AGYW can interact with each other and discuss their real-life challenges.
