'Protect Your Life' Cheza Salama

There is a desperate need for young women and men to come to terms with their own values, know their choices and possibilities, and become empowered to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health and rights. Enabling women and men to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy, disease and gender based violence is one of the fundamental needs that Femina Hip aims to address. Engaging youth in a productive way around these issues requires careful consideration and intentional interventions to navigate the sensitive moral landscape around sexuality.
