Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

I provided free family planning services to over 300 people in the past one year.

I have reduced the incidence of unsafe abortions through implementation of family planning,advocacy & safe abortion care among the youths in my locality.

I have also organized outreaches in different communities,counselled & provivided free FP services to them.

I also changed a lot of people's wrong concepts about family planning.

I made sure that this service is rendered free to everyone that accesses family planning service.

What sparked your passion for family planning?

Over the years,I have seen deaths resulted from unsafe abortions especially among the youths which could have been prevented by simple family planning method(s).

This sad memories sparked my passion to provide a healthy solution which is the use of effective contraception/family planning methods.

Give one or two examples of how you display leadership in your family planning work.:

I planned & led the community outreaches advocating & providing family planning services.

I also partner with ministry of health & other NGOs to provide family planning services to adolescents and to our mothers in the communities without prior knowledge of family planning.
