Educate the locals on family planning and its importance
Unexpected and unplanned pregnancies is really affecting the youth. Pregnancy is a period that should be enjoyed along with all its ups and downs. To be able to enjoy this period you need to be prepared physically, emotionally andpsychologically. During pregnancy a lot happens to a woman’s body and she will need a strong loving partner to support her through it. We have seen young ladies who had to go through it alone just because the men who got them pregnant abandoned them. We have seen women struggle to pick themselves back up after being so torn up, having a baby is not easy and its even harder when its not planned. Lets help the youth prepare for a greater course , as we guide them through showing them that they can actually prevent these unnecessary abortions, that they can actually create families that aren’t separated. We are determined to spread the knowledge, As we take this upon ourselves to save lives in the cause of action. We intend to reach out to the youths in cities, towns, villages and slums one at a time leaving no stone unturned by engaging in public forums, debates and creating platforms where talking about sexual and reproductive health is not a taboo making it easy for youths to come forward and express themselves on their experience without the fear of being judged. We also intend to shade light on the faults in the health system using our platform whilst spreading awareness on the importance of family planning which saves the lives of women, newborns, children and teenage girls. It also reduces the burden on natural resources and the environment in general. As we work towards bringing this to life , LEAVE A MARK IN AFRICA welcomes you to join hands in this life changing program which also intends to give counseling to the youth that have already been affected by poor decisions and poor family planning.
