My body, my rights!
Child marriage and early pregnancy affect children’s schooling and health in a negative way. By educating both boys, girls and teachers about sexual and reproductive health rights in school, we can get involved at an early stage and influence social standards. By raising the children’s awareness regarding their rights based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which also includes self-determination over their own body, they acquire the tools to fight against violations of children’s rights. At present, 2 million children under the age of 15 worldwide give birth every year. Through education in family planning, we can further work towards reducing the number of early pregnancies. Join us and get involved!
