Adolescents constitute a large proportion of Kenya’s population. This has implications on the country’s health and development agenda. Gwengnyakager believes sexual and reproductive health care for adolescents is essential for young people to realize their full potential. To realise this goal, we focus on:

  • Strengthening health services to offer young people the sexual and reproductive health care they need without judgment or bias
  • Empowering adolescents and youth to make their own decisions about their bodies and their futures by changing community norms related to gender, adolescent sexuality, early marriage, and childbearing
  • Supporting young women and first-time parents to delay their first pregnancy and space their births for the best health outcomes for mothers and children
