Aspire to inspire that every child should have access to an exceptional, personalized education that enables them to be happy and successful in an ever-changing and to lead dignify life.

OUR CORE VALUES

We break down social and cultural barriers that prevent girls and women and from participating in community development.

We aim to teach the importance and necessity of accountability and social responsibility both to one’s community and one’s country.

There is a disconnect between schools, learners and the communities; therefore, we are involved in providing access to learning resources such as flashcards, learning devices and teaching materials.

We strive to build the capacity of the local communities so that they can manage and sustain their development.

We work with the community and other stakeholders to accomplish more than we could on our own.

We strive to apply the highest levels of ethics, accountability, transparency, and professionalism in our work.

SEXUAL & REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

NEGLECTING SRHR

On SRHR. The risks of neglecting ASRH are great; a painful or damaging transition to adulthood can result in a lifetime of ill effects. For girls, early pregnancy/motherhood can be physically risky and can compromise educational achievement and economic potential. Adolescents—girls in particular—face the increased risk of exposure to HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), sexual coercion, exploitation, and violence. All of these have huge impacts on an individual’s physical and mental health, as well as long-term implications for them, their families, and their communities.

SEXUAL & REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

Adolescent’s

An adolescent’s sexual and reproductive health is strongly linked to their particular social, cultural, and economic environment. In addition to regional variation, experiences are diversified by age, sex, marital status, schooling, residence, migration, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status, among other characteristics. Access to health care and sources of education, information, and support also varies widely. The variations demand country-level analyses of patterns but despite these variations, key issues, barriers, and challenges, as well as potential solutions, can be identified across the board.

Sexual & Reproductive Health
