I have been able to reach to more than 1000 men through advocacy on the need to support their women in accessing family planning services, since in my community husbands have been holding very strong believes that their women should never access professional family planning services. The 1000 men reached are very supportive by accompanying their wives to the health centers in accessing family planning services. I have also managed to reach to 500 school young girls and boys with family planning information’s and methods in a way to empower them so that they can be making informed choices when it comes to opting for family planning decisions.
I have witnessed violation of women and girls health rights since they cannot make their informed choices; instead they are forced or rather subjected to situations that cannot give them conducive environment to make their informed choices for example a girl or women in possession of condom is a taboo and that is the biggest mistake she can afford in the community.
I have always advocated during public gatherings in the villages on the need for men, fathers to support their wives and children in family planning decisions. I do also sensitize fact information contrary to the misconceptions about family planning methods. Through my different capacities as young leader, I have been able to resource mobilize for support from other like-minded persons and institutions to support my work in either way including financial support.
I will train 35 advocates to advocate for family planning services at the village levels. They will be trained for 2 days.
I will have 2 radio talk shows on sensitization about family planning. I will use 98.2 FM which is a local radio station available within my locality.
There will be 1 day road show caravan aimed at reaching to 5000 locals with family planning information’s.
