Educate:  SDG 3 Good health and wellbeing

For millions of young people, the onset of adolescence brings not only changes to their bodies but also new vulnerabilities to human rights abuses, particularly in the arenas of sexuality, marriage, and childbearing. Millions of girls are coerced into unwanted sex or marriage, putting them at risk of unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortions, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV, and dangerous childbirth. Adolescent boys are at risk, as well. Young people  both boys and girls are disproportionately affected by HIV. Yet too many young people still face barriers to reproductive health information and care. Even those able to find accurate information about their health and rights may be unable to access the services needed to protect their health.

Through dynamic and participatory outreaches, we seek to empower young people to make smart and healthy decisions for their futures. We provide access to menstrual health and hygiene management practices, services to prevent, diagnose and treat STIs; and counseling, empower young people to know and exercise their rights – including the right to delay marriage and the right to refuse unwanted sexual advances to actively promote and protect the sexual and reproductive health and human rights of adolescents.
