G-Pange Annual Talent Explosion (GATE)

GATE was developed under the G-PANGE youth-inspired lifestyle brand in 2010. It calls upon youth individually and collectively to take charge and be active in protecting their health and future.
GATE was designed to tap and nurture the talents of youth in the performing arts.
The festivals also linked young people to opportunities in the job market and were provided with biomedical services, including HTC, as well as information on RH, drug and substance abuse and economic empowerment.
GATE reached over 17,000 youth with BCC messages, with more young men than women participating in the activities.
5,318 youth received mentoring in their respective performing art, 471 of whom were linked to marketing and training opportunities.
