to the government and the people of Kenya in recovery efforts that will help mitigate the negative impact of Covid-19 on the health, economic, and social wellbeing of communities across the 47 counties. In this second year of the decade of action, an ambitious effort is required to meet the sustainable development goals and in realizing Kenya’s vision 2030. Our programmes will focus on driving innovation, advocating for greater financial investments in sexual and reproductive health services, all the while making space for young people to act as the leaders and changemakers our societies need.
