Thank you for the incredible support we have received today and throughout the year! We are passionate about sexual and reproductive health and rights, and we love working with others who are, too. Together, we're making a real difference for real people. Happy #GivingTuesday!

Today is #GivingTuesday, a day to give back & to kick off the giving season. You can give the gift of safe, secure #reproductivehealth to women and girls around the world, and whatever amount you give, it will be doubled.

#SRHR

Sexual and gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of women and girls.
Yet #SGBV remains shrouded in a culture of silence.
📣 Speaking out
brings us a step closer towards justice & healing.

We’re inspired! Over the last four days, we asked delegates at #ICFP2018 to share their commitments to #familyplanning. We heard from youth advocates, leaders, activists, scientists, researchers, and more!

Emefa Agotame is a 25-year-old sex worker in Lomé, Togo, with a fiery streak of red running through her hair. Emefa has had five children, but two passed away in their early childhood. After that experience, she started to receive condoms and other forms of contraception from Petite Soeur à Soeur, an organization supported by EngenderHealth’s Agir pour la Planification Familiale (AgirPF) program, which provides counseling on family planning, sexually transmitted infections, and HIV.
