Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.
In the past 6 months,I have realised the need to intensify efforts at increasing awareness on the use of modern contraceptives through a weekly health show(Sound Health)I initiated and present.
I have also been able to partner with one of the largest and private Providers of family planning and Reproductive health Products in the Country(Honey and banana/DKT) by developing content,anchoring and producing a weekly 30 minutes show on the Use of Modern contraceptives.
With my expertise,the show,Contraceptive Matters with DKT has been able to dispel misconceptions about Family planning.
What sparked your passion for family planning?
This has also prepared me ahead of my Broadcast career.
Give one or two examples of how you display leadership in your family planning work.:
I have led the Family Life Educators team in budgeting,planing,conducting programs in schools,religious gatherings and seminars.
I have also employed social media platforms to encourage feedback on modern family planing.RecentIy,i extended airtime,added more segments in the new quarter based on viewership.
If you are named a winner of 120 under 40, how will you use this new platform and the $1000 grant to advance your work?
I will also increase outreach programs at Religious,Social gatherings and on Social Media.This will in turn allow Families especially Women make smart family planning choices.
