Reaching over 6000 girls annually, we protect the reproductive rights, health and future of girls in Africa. Through education, access to information and advocacy, we empower the girl to make safe and wise choices to protect her sexual health and future. This ensures she remains a productive contributor of her community, putting less strain on social resources.
Teenage pregnancy is rampant in Africa due to a lack of information and education. In an unfriendly environment, victims often resort to unsafe practices in an effort to remedy the situation that may lead to untimely deaths or permanent damage to her sexual and overall health. Our timely intervention may prevent unnecessary loses of this nature.
By giving the young lady the tools to make wise and safe choices, we go to the root of the problem to prevent an unwanted pregnancy that may lead to an unfortunate death. The platform gives timely information and access to health care and further facilitates her with tools to help her focus on her goals. As continuum of our impact, we advocate for her right to make safe choices in a friendly environment.
Enabling the girl to remain sexually healthy and make safe decisions, means she stays in school and becomes more productive in her community, more helpful to her family and less dependent on scarce social resources.
