As we commemorate
Inadequate access to adolescent-friendly health information and services due to stigma or logistical reasons, as well as inequitable gender norms, continue presenting a significant challenge to meeting the SRHR needs of young people, and contribute to a lack of knowledge and awareness of FP and other SRH services in Zimbabwe. The most affected remains being the adolescent girls and young women.
Our YRHAs improve and increase access and uptake of SRHR services and information among Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) through the Youth Reproductive Health Assistants (YRHAs) model. Get in touch with them in your community. Details are on the flier.

• Mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, su***de attempts and substance abuse are some of the effects of Gender Based Violence on young people. It's every child's right to be raised in a violence free society.
We choose to . Young people need to be aware of the fact that violence against women and our silence about it, is a problem and that preventing violence will benefit everyone including the future generation.
Currently happening at our Football For Hope (FFH) Center, Grassroot Soccer is conducting the Faith Religious Leaders Training.
Violence against women is a pervasive problem and is unjust. The belief that boys and men are seen as having more value than girls and women leads to an imbalance of power between women and men. Religious leaders play a major role in ensuring that relationships can be safe and happy, improving life for families, communities and young people, who are the future.
Did you know? According to UNAIDS, every week, about 4,500 young women aged 15 – 24 years acquire HIV. In sub-Saharan Africa, 5 in 6 new infections among adolescents aged 15 – 19 years are among girls. Young women are twice as likely to be living with HIV than men.
As we celebrate World AIDS Day, we appreciate the work being done by our Youth Reproductive Health Assistants (YRHAs) who are working in the community to provide adolescents with contraceptives to prevent HIV infections and unwanted pregnancies as well as sharing information on the effects of Gender Based Violence and addressing inequalities between boys and girls.
