W e have seen a rise in teenage pregnancies, domestic violence, forced marriages and in some communities we have heard an increase in FGM.

Basing on the Teenage Pregnancy Assessment Survey (TPAS 2021) carried out by Hope Centre Foundation, we conducted a one hour radio talk to addressed the challanges teenages were going through as a result of pregnancies for instance, torture, neglect, some were abandoned and even some were raped.This was meant to engage the community to address the common barriers to a holistic environment.
Our team today held a two hour awareness and sensitization radio programme to inform the public about the increasing need to protect the girl child, restrain from all posible causes of domestic violance, the increasing cases in teenage pregancies and forced marriages plus seeking expert guidance on family plaaning. The team asked the public to take precaution about the wide spread of the COVID-19 and above all, the team asked all community members regardless of gender and ethnity to be ambassadors of peace.

What People say
Member, Hope For Action
Our society has got a number of cultural norms and practices that to me are backward and rendered useless and humane. I joined the Hope For Action so as to drive the positve change towards and end in humane acts like forced marriages, domestic violance, Menstration stigma and sexual education from the many.
Mr. Birungi Stephen
In my area of jurisdiction, many families were in wrangles of domestice violence, however, when the Hope For Action youth came to our area, at first we thought what can the youth communicate that can bring about change?.But luckily enough, their one day community dialogue yielded fruits. We are grateful.
