Challenge

In Togo, 5,343 unwanted pregnancies were recorded among adolescents aged 8 to 12 years in school between 2009 and 2012. The actual numbers are likely to be higher. 7.3% of the mother-in-law are not yet major and 17.3% of all pregnancies in Togo can be considered as early. According to the 2010 MICS survey, the rate of early pregnancy before the age of 18 is 17.3% in our country, especially in schools. Hence the abandonment of schools, the severe sequelae of childbirth such as fistula.

Solution

The project will address the teaching of sexual and integral education in 100 schools and 50 learning centers. The lessons will be organized in the form of an educational talk in the classrooms. Offers of services such as free cost of sexually transmitted infections, the establishment of girls under contraceptive methods and the free distribution of condoms will be done. The promotion of sexual abstinence will also be done.
