For effective development, we believe that education, health, and employment revolves interdependently around a cycle and the focus must be on young people.

OUR WORK

Active Voices believes in building sustainable partnerships and works with several organizations to bring about positive change

Education

We believe education is the single most effective way end the cycle of poverty and for this, we support education for all with a focus on girls' education.

Our project "Keep Girls in School" supports girls education through the sponsorship of tuition, academic materials and uniforms for underprivileged girls.

You can contribute to girls' education by supporting the project through the details provided in the flyer.

Adolescent Health

Preventable health risk behaviours are often established during childhood or adolescence and continue into adulthood. Focusing on adolescent health therefore translates into a healthier future.

Our current project on adolescent health focuses on Menstrual Health Management with the embedment of comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) for a holistic program. CSE is also known as Reproductive Health Education.

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

With a focus on youth, women and girls, we believe that everyone should have access to sexual and reproductive health and rights.

All projects implemented by Active Voices incorporates the advancement of one or more components of SRHR including sexual health, sexual rights, reproductive health and/or reproductive rights.

Gender Based Violence

We work to address all forms of Gender based violence (GBV) including domestic & sexual violence, child marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM).

We incorporate a community and youth led approach to end child marriage and promote girls’ education in Northern Nigeria. Our project focuses on advocacy, engagement with religious and community leaders, community sensitization and youth engagement to generate discussions and stimulate efforts towards ending the practice of child marriage. In addition, we advocate for the promotion of girl-child education as a way of delaying the age of marriage.

Active Voices prides itself in the strategic engagement of youths to drive the movement to end FGM while engaging community and religious leaders for a wider impact. To address medicalisation of FGM, we work with health workers and engage other relevant stakeholders including survivors for a holistic and sustainable approach.

Advocacy for improved health and development is a major aspect of our work at Active Voices.
