The comparison group for the participatory video intervention.
Experimental: Participatory nutrition education
Intervention arm integrates participatory video model to standard girls' club sessions to promote nutrition education.
Behavioral: Participatory video
Participatory video education is an intervention model that gives communities the film-making skills necessary to make videos that can be used in nutrition promotion. For the purposes of this study, we will be using a participatory video model as an approach to educate participants in a school-based girls club on nutrition education topics. Participants are taught how to use film equipment and accompanied to draft scripts, create characters, video-record the shots, and act (if they wish) in the video. These videos will be used in the group as a means of sharing nutrition information with students and in stimulating discussion around the nutrition topic.
