Sonke uses Ambush Theatre (also called invisible theatre) as an innovative means of raising awareness about pertinent issues. The technique involves a staged performance that gets attention and sparks debate on HIV and AIDS, domestic violence and gender equality.

PhotoVoice

PhotoVoice is a school-based project that trains learners to use photography and writing to chronicle their daily lives, provides a look at the community through its children’s eyes.

With support from UNICEF, Sonke has been working in KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape since late 2006 to promote greater involvement by men in meeting the needs of children affected by HIV and AIDS. Alongside community education and capacity building for local partners, Sonke has used PhotoVoice to help children convey their experiences, needs and aspirations and to mobilize adults — and especially men — to meet their needs.
