Fashion designers learn how to use data to promote dialog on sexual health

Data Zetu challenged Tanzania’s creative community to design data-informed khangas — fabrics traditionally containing social messages — that promote reproductive health and gender equality. During November and December 2017, more than 75 young fashion designers participated in training where they learned about the concept and importance of data, how to search for data from credible sources, how to artistically visualize data and develop strategies for integrating data into their designs.
  • 92% of trained designers reported sharing their data access, sharing, or cleaning skills with an average of four other people.
  • One designer was later hired by a hotel in Arusha to develop uniforms - he elected to use a Maasai theme after finding data that 80% of tourists visit Maasai homes.
1st winner Danford Marco:"If you keep quiet they will make you cry" The hearts represent the 1 out of 2 married women in Tanzania who have been emotionally, sexually or physically abused by their past or current husbands.
2nd winner Winfrida Touwa: "I’m not ripe don’t pick me" The three unripe oranges with one peeled represents the 1 out of 3 women aged 15–49 in Tanzania who have experienced sexual violence.
3rd winner Shahbaaz Sayeed: “Don’t judge me for what I’ve gone through” The repeating design of three pieces of shattered glass with one piece coated in red, represents the 1 out of 3 women in Tanzania who have experienced sexual violence in their lifetime.
