Reproductive Health Access Initiative (RHAI)

In 2007, we started distributing reusable pads and condoms to girls and boys at the Learning & Leadership Centre. In parallel, we also introduced reproductive health programming at the Centre as part of our holistic approach for empowering youth.

Building on nearly 15 years of work, the Reproductive Health Access Initiative (RHAI) was formalized in 2022 to address a multitude of factors that prevent girls and women from dreaming big and achieving their full potential, including:

  • Lack of information about or access to family planning, modern contraception, and HIV Awareness / STD prevention programs;

  • Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR)

  • Systemic barriers to secondary education; and

  • Gender discrimination and cultural / social taboos that prevent girls and women from accessing crucial healthcare services and exercising their reproductive rights, and,

  • Gender-based Violence (GBV) Awareness

By equipping girls and women with the best modern tools to own their health, we’re empowering them to participate fully in education and public life and to achieve their full potential.
