Mama by choice, not by chance

We are supporting young women to raise awareness of the benefits of contraception with teenage girls.

The main goal is to increase the use of long-acting reversible contraceptives (such as the implant and IUDs) since they’re an accessible and reliable way for young girls to manage their contraception.

Young female volunteers are working with both in-school girls (running sessions on family planning and sexual health) as well as out-of-school girls (including out-of-school adolescent mothers). They’re also working with local leaders, healthcare facilities, parents of adolescent girls, teenage boys, and wider community members to create a positive environment for girls to make informed choices about their health.
