Where we come from

When we started our journey with founding Jugend gegen AIDS in 2010, we were pupils who wanted to do something against AIDS. As of today, more than ten years later, we have grown into an organization with public visibility, international reach and prominent supporters. We have established two international organizations, Jugend gegen AIDS and Youth against AIDS, we implemented an international condom distribution program, a podcast, and an AI-based chatbot on a platform that provides young people with reliable and target group tailored information. We can proudly name politicians, entrepreneurs and scientists as professionals and representatives for companies who have joined us on our journey and remain as our backing support. One would probably speak of a real success story. 

However, today we would rather be "for" something than “against it” and we do much more than just fighting AIDS. To give each existing or upcoming brand, project or organization the most fruitful ground, we have founded the Organization for Human Health and Happiness. We will continue with what we did, focus on our strengths and complement our portfolio with new ideas. Creating and providing tools, that will fundamentally improve the future of teenagers and young adults in the mirror of health, well-being and innovation will substantially remain the core of our engagement. We will take the leap forward, always with a firm eye on the future of our generation.

Vision and mission

Ohhh! aims to empower young individuals to explore, embrace and experience their sexual identities safely and respectfully in a time that is ever-changing. Coming from a background of coupling creative activism with a strategic calculus, we take this step into our future consciously and purposefully. Ohhh! builds the logical sequel to not only fighting STIs, but ameliorating the health and happiness of people around the globe by holding a wide-spread portfolio full of innovation, engagement and passion.The measurable effectiveness of our projects stems from the ability to dynamically adapt to emerging challenges whilst remaining unchanged in our ambition and aspirations as unconventional but determined young leaders. We seek to provide our audience with relevant information and services, following our goal to educate, enable, and empower those who build the future.

As modern times require modern solutions, we intend to keep our role as brave pioneers and therefore expand on digital innovation as a key factor in all of our work. We would like to invite you to our inspiring journey - we don’t know the final destination yet - if there’s any at all, but we’re confident to always meet our aspirations.

Projects

We can look back at a ten-year-long success story, filled with ups and downs, experience, dynamic growth and many many distributed condoms. But as of today, our purpose has expanded. What has remained unchanged is our attitude and determination to guarantee youth an access to knowledge, protection, and support. Here we come up with creative solutions, always with a strong focus on digital and accessible products or projects. Each project is designed with consideration, care and creativity, but also with regard to scalability, or measurability. We want to make sure that our ideas and ambitions don’t get lost in bureaucratic jungles, or hampered by corruption or general lack of feasibility. Often trial and error was a main mechanism our work relied on, but today with our growing professionality, network, and experience, we can confidently set up strong plans and strategies, working towards a better future and wholesome society.

Our strong network allows us to tackle problems in a profound and far-reaching manner, by giving us access to resources that are essential to our work. Be it their knowledge, experience, support, advice, engagement, mentorship, and (we could go on for quite a while here) simply but most importantly time and attention - our partners are the bee’s knees. They form the very network ohhh! needs to spread our values in an innovative, targeted and at all times authentic way towards the society of today and tomorrow.
