We provide capacity development training for disadvantaged teenagers and their groups with focus on ensuring they have access to correct teen friendly information on sexual reproductive health and rights so that they become resilient, empowered and bold enough to take and own healthy sexual decisions.
We aim at:
To engage communities of teenagers, young men and women in empowerment and delivery of sexual reproductive health and rights education to their peers.

To create and distribute menstrual supplies and contraceptives at the last mile using the network of young men and women in their communities.
