Young Talk is an audience-driven, culturally-appropriate newspaper produced monthly for younger (10-14 year old) Ugandan adolescents by Straight Talk Foundation, a leading Health & Development Communication NGO based in Kampala, Uganda.

Young Talk appears in Uganda's lead national daily, _The New Vision_, and is posted to 25,000 schools, CBO/NGOs, health units, churches and mosques across Uganda ten times annually, giving the paper an audience of nearly 1.5 million adolescents each month. Among other things, Young Talk strives to help younger adolescents abstain from sex, stay in school, stay safe, understand body changes, and make informed life decisions.

It is good manners to respect and listen to adults, but in some cases young people need to say no to adults. In his issue, we present true stories to help readers understand why sometimes they must say no to adults.
