Love Matters Rwanda

Love Matters Rwanda was launched in February 2019 under the regional Love Matters Africa platform to provide easy-to-access SRHR information in Kinyarwanda to an audience of over 4,000 young people. To achieve the highest impact, Love Matters Rwanda built a strong link between offline SRHR work and online youth engagement, establishing a partnership between Pax Press Rwanda, a journalism-focused organisation, and Tantine, a youth-led mobile health phone application platform. In December 2019 we handed over the Love Matters Rwanda platform to Tantine so the organisation could take it forward as part of their mobile application content strategy.

Tantine can then also offer direct access and referral to SRHR services and counselling through their team of young medical doctors.

Highlights of 2019

Creation of strategy


This partnership was able to create a strong implementation strategy to bring the needs of young Rwandans to the online work of Love Matters and Tantine. Love Matters Rwanda trained journalists on SRHR to reach to a nationwide level, and the Tantine mobile application provided a link to SRHR counselling and services via the Tantine.

Hand over


In December 2019 we handed over the Love Matters Rwanda platform to Tantine so the organisation could take it forward as part of their mobile application content strategy. In this way we ensure Tantine can continue to serve young Rwandans on SRHR with readily available content in Kiyarwanda. Tantine can then also offer direct access and referral to SRHR services and counselling through their team of young medical doctors.
