These are short movies (12 to 15 minutes) produced by a group of young people in Cote d’Ivoire “PemaAct” and entitled “Miel Mortel”(Deadly Honey). “Honey” refers to the gifts and advantages girls usually get from the Sugar Daddy relationship but it is a “deadly” honey because these benefits are short-lived and destroy their future with unwanted pregnancies and/or HIV. Most of these short movies are based on true stories and the testimonies of some victims are also available. The videos are already in French, the official language in Togo.
