A Rise in Reproductive Health Education for Youth

Thank you for donating to CHAT's Family Planning and Environmental Initiative.
The team has been busy since January, thanks in part to your contributions.Over the past three months over 2,500 women received long term contraceptives (3-5 years), 1,344 women received the short term contraceptive (3 month), and 430 women are taking oral contraceptives.

One of the most promising bits of data are the number of school children who have been educated on Family Planning and Reproductive Health: 2,934. Pregnancies often begin at a young age for the individuals we work with, 14, and in some cases, 12 and 13. These are difficult ages to imagine both bearing and raising babies, especially healthy babies.

For this reason, education on and access to Family Planning is crucial for their future growth; both in terms of their health and their education. The number of youth practicing birth control has risen to 4,508 in the last few months. We hope to see this rise as we continue to educate on the benefits of Family Planning and continue to provide reliable and affordable options for them. In Laikipia county, one out of approximately 47 counties in Kenya, and one of the counties in which we work, 75,000 women currently want, but cannot gain access to Family Planning methods.

There is always work to be done! And we thank you for your contributions that continue to fuel us.

Lots of Salaams, as always.
