Educator, Evelyn, talks about her commitment to WINGS

Evelyn, 28, began working with WINGS as a volunteer helping spread information about sexual and reproductive health to women in her village. She was so motivated and successful in reaching out to her community that WINGS soon took her on as a full time field educator. Here she speaks a little about why she remains commited to the job:

“Working with WINGS has given me the chance to really see the culture and beliefs that we have around family planning. Mainly it’s due to poor education – or none at all – about reproductive health. I’ve worked with so many families here that wanted guidance on these topics that I know the work we’re doing is important. In most communities, people don’t have access to the kinds of services WINGS can provide so it’s great that we can fill that gap. I feel really good about my work because I’ve supported families in reaching their own family planning decision by giving them information. We hope to keep counting on the support of people who make our work possible. I truly believe that this is fundamental for my country, and I will continue to work my hardest on this with WINGS.”
