Promoting social change and gender equality
We will build on and scale up our successful work in ending the harmful practice of FGM in a generation. We will seek new opportunities to apply our social change communication and movement building approaches to address other harmful norms and practices that hold women and girls back from achieving their potential, including violence, early marriage, and early childbearing.
We will work towards building women and girl’s self-efficacy to make healthy choices, and take up sexual and reproductive health services, particularly contraception and safe abortion. We will give attention to the needs of adolescent girls and increase our focus on those with disability.
The impact we will achieve:
- Reduction in harmful practices, such as FGM and early marriage
- Stigma reduction around girls’ sexuality
- Women and girls have access to contraception and safe abortion
- Girls empowered to make healthy life choices
