Our Rights, Our lives, Our Future seeks to improve sexual and reproductive health, gender and education outcomes for adolescents and young people in Sub-Saharan Africa. It will support delivery of good quality comprehensive sexuality education that empowers adolescents, young people, and builds agency while developing the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required for preventing HIV, reducing early and unintended pregnancies and eliminating gender based violence. The project will contribute to the education, health and gender Sustainable Development Goals, while also contributing to the achievement of other key SDGs, especially those on poverty, hunger, and peaceful and just societies.
