Positive Deviance is based on the observation that in every community there are certain individuals or groups whose uncommon behaviors and strategies enable them to find better solutions to problems than their peers, while having access to the same resources and facing similar or worse challenges.

This is a video profiling of a Zambian based Voices of Youth Connect Educator called Josephine. She explains how she has emerged has a shining example in her community called Kanyama. This video further demonstrates how an SMS based information service on HIV and STIs is based utilized by Zambia's youth. It also illustrates how VOY Connect is helping shape the lives of most Zambian youth.
