Challenge

In Nigeria,the culture of silence on topics like reproductive health, sex, menstruation e.t.c has led to gaps in learning,inability to make informed choices & remains a major obstacle for development.This is evident in increased rate of teenage pregnancy,unsafe abortion,unhygienic menstrual practices e.t.c. Girls in rural areas who grow up with no access to information,services or support on Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) matters are most affected,making it difficult to make informed decisions

Solution

This project educates in-school & out-of-school adolescent girls on SRH matters using low-cost mobile technology.673 girls will become informed;engage their peers using creative teaching that widen knowledge of adolescent SRHR & form peer support networks that address misconceptions & social norm of silence on SRH topics via awareness raising,providing access to information & service referral so girls can manage their menstrual health;prevent teenage pregnancy,unsafe abortion,STIs,HIV/AIDS e.t.c

Long-Term Impact

This project will create a supportive environment that breaks the social norm of silence on Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) topics with open discussions recorded in homes, schools & communities, at large. Also, 673 girls who become informed and adequately educated will transfer knowledge gained through peer education resulting in wider project outreach & deeper penetration. Furthermore, our low-cost mobile technology promotes inclusion of schools irrespective of location & access to electricity
