The project will provide access to quality family planning products and services to over 500 young couples belonging to rural villages in Uttar Pradesh, India. This would enable them to take an informed decision to plan and space their pregnancies as per their choice. By contributing as little as $10, you can help these couples lead a better reproductive life.
In India Family Planning(FP)is hushed issue.Early marriage is common; thereafter which young couples face family pressure to reproduce soon.Couples have no access to FP methods & services.In absence of good counseling support either go for sterilization for incentive or have unsafe abortions.HLFPPT is striving to address problem through its network of hospital-Merrygold Hospitals where couple have access to whole range of FP products & services with counseling support to make informed FP choice.

This project will help prevent unwanted pregnancies and also needless deaths of mothers on account of unsafe abortions. It would help ensure that each baby born is welcomed and is healthy. Given the key role that family members and community plays in controlling family planning decisions of the couples, the program will also contribute towards creation of an enabling environment that promotes proper timing and spacing of pregnancies in the state-starting with one couple at a time.
We are currently expecting delays in getting funds to this project due to new regulatory requirements that impact GlobalGiving's ability to disburse to organizations in India. GlobalGiving is working hard to address the issue. Donations to this project will be disbursed as quickly as possible.
