Key Achievements

We organised training for Abortion service providers to provide medical abortion services to clients with a high degree of professionalism and also engaging and disseminating/sharing medical abortion knowledge and skills among other service providers respecting the WHO guildlines. We train adolescent girls and young women on self-managed abortion with pills to de-stigmatise and also change the social landscape. 

We have an established hotline platform (Aunty Queen) for information and referrals. This platform integrates SMS and calls with clients with a focus on the provision of information related to self-managed abortion with pills availability and other online information on sexual reproductive health and rights with a high proficiency of confidentiality.

We run a girl’s mentorship peer education program to develop more persuasive life skills and encourages informed decision-making about safe abortion, access to contraceptives, addressing mental health issues that continue to grow in importance with adolescent girls and young women.

We run a Life skills Program is an in-school and community program that engages young people as peer educators to work with schools in rural and urban communities in the region. The program addresses the Reproductive Health Needs and Rights of Young People and learning opportunities and also the program is designed to increase young people’s knowledge of primary health and hygiene education, supporting their transition into formal education and developing Life Skills that are complementary to educate them on sexuality, reproductive health, safe abortion and sexual orientation.
