SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS
HIV & AIDS
We train teachers and other school personnel to improve the quality of education while linking education programs to interventions in health, nutrition and livelihoods to better address the reasons children don’t attend school. We also help communities assess and overcome their unique barriers to learning.
Child Rights & Equity
Children experience poverty differently than adults do because of their vulnerability and lack of legal and economic status in society. How children are doing, in all aspects of their lives, reflects the overall health and development of the family, community and society they live in.
A thriving society values all children, especially the most vulnerable, and upholds their human rights.
