Among the key note speakers Miriam Namugera, the principle nursing officers of the ministry of health said family planning is important to fight unintended pregnancies. In her address she said that the recent Uganda demographic health survey indicates that out of 100 girls below the age of 16 have become pregnant.

The Minister of state for health Dr. Aceng promised to involve community health extension workers to reach out to those that are not accessing family planning services due to geographical, economic, and social barriers.

With access to appropriate information and services, young people can truly plan for schooling, work, and childbearing on their terms.

And through our SHARE community and schools program CFYDDI continues to raise awareness among the youth about the risk behaviors that cause unwanted pregnancies.

CFYDDI participation and many others in such national conferences promotes a bottom top learning opportunity and exposure of the rural communities to the big concerns of the world where every person has a role to play! this provided a great opportunity for youth advocates to meet with champions but also provide the champions an opportunity to hear often the unheard rural voices that struggle to access contraception.

Informing you on how you can continue supporting our community effort and better our work and letting you know our funding needs.

Here at CFYDDI we are always finding cheaper ways to provide a service for everyone in rural communities in education, healthcare and community self help initiatives. Some of our program supporters, field travelers, and ambassadors from Global Giving and elsewhere have visited us here at CFYDDI and verified the work we are doing and we have been vetted by Global Giving’s rigorous due diligence process and this has further been cemented by 2 of our supporters giving us a score of 10 with the following feedback:

Those who started this still work all day, every day to make sure that children are safe, healthy and educated. They do not use the money for anything else. They continue to expand their services as they are able. CFYDDI is truly an example of what an on-ground non-profit should look like. We know the people, we know their work. We shall continue our support gladly.”
