Earlier this year, Tonga declared a dengue fever outbreak after reporting several cases in the first two months of 2015. The Ministry of Health in Tonga and SAWBO worked closely together to find a quick and easy way to spread information that could help the population there learn how to deal with and prevent spreading the virus.
SAWBO has developed more than 30 different 2D and 3D animations with voice-overs in over 50 different languages. We work in three main areas: Agriculture, Health and Women's Empowerment. Please visit SAWBO's Video Library where you can watch or download all our videos in any available language, for free. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer to help us with voice-overs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
