Peer2Peer for SRH Education

Changemaker: Lela Dolo

Country of Implementation: Liberia


Facing an alarming teenage pregnancy rate, especially in rural areas where 42% of girls aged 15-19 are affected, Liberia grapples with limited access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health education. In response, Help a Mother and Newborn Initiative (HMNI), a local non-profit, is executing "." This program empowers rural adolescents with crucial knowledge, fostering informed decisions about health and contributing to a healthier future. These clubs provide a platform for adolescents to learn about and discuss issues affecting them, including sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) or mental health issues. These adolescents can learn, share experiences, and grow together. The program is currently being implemented in 6 public schools from underserved rural communities where these essential conversations are often limited, directly empowering about 1000 adolescents.

With the support of the GCM grant, we aim to strengthen the existing clubs and expand to 4 more schools, enhancing inclusivity and informed choices. For details, visit https://helpamotherandnewborn.org.
