This project seeks to empower adolescent girls through improved access to reproductive health education and responsive reproductive health services. It will enable adolescent girls to be assertive by providing them with information on sexual and gender based violence prevention, and easy access to sexual reproductive health services.
ARHR is working with local NGOs in the Ashiedu Keteke sub-metro in the Greater Accra Region; Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem (KEEA) Municipal assembly in the Central Region, Nzema East Municipal assembly in the Western Region, South Dayi district in the Volta Region and Bosome Freho district in the Ashanti Region to target out-of-school females between ages 10-19 years including persons with disabilities.
Activities include capacity building on reproductive health education for these out-of-school female adolescents, documentation of information, education and communication materials on sexuality education for use by these adolescents, strengthening the capacity of selected local NGOs and community facilitators and a sports day for persons with disabilities.
It is expected that more adolescent girls will be enabled to access adolescent friendly health services and also exercise their agency on sexual and reproductive health. It is funded by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
