Discussion board moderator – Love Matters Arabic

Working together with RNW Media is much more than an assignment.

About RNW Media
RNW Media builds digital communities for social change. We dream of a world where young people in restrictive settings confidently claim their rights, assume their place in society, and shape a better future.

We support young people (18-30 years old) to come together through digital platforms—with websites, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and other channels. Through our platforms young people get comprehensive science- and rights-based information and a safe space to focus on their aspirations and engage in constructive dialogue about what really matters to them. Your job will be to support young people on our platforms to find their voices, make informed choices and build their communities to drive social change.

About Love Matters
The Love Matters Arabic platform provides young people with science-based articles, videos, and engaging posts, related to love, sex, marriage, and reproductive health; thus, enabling them to take informed educated decisions regarding their lives and bodies.

Embracing a pleasure-positive guilt-free approach to sex and sexuality, the platforms engage young people on issues such as love, dating, marriage, divorce, intimacy, contraception, pregnancy, sexual and reproductive rights, and puberty.

Open, honest and sex-positive, the Love Matters programme is a global leader in delivering information and media on love, sex and relationships to 18-30 year old in areas where information on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) is censored or taboo.
