NAYA is proud to announce the release of our new anthology, RAISING OUR VOICES! A collection of advocacy stories depicting young people’s commitment to the reproductive health and rights of youth in Kenya.
At the heart of everything that NAYA does is the commitment to our founding vision: A society where the reproductive health and rights of adolescent and youths are recognized, provided for and respected.
Raising Our Voices is a mere glimpse into the voices of young people that NAYA is proud to collaborate and partner with in our SRHR advocacy efforts.
The anthology is a collection of short advocacy stories weaving together the personal experiences of young people as well as their calls to key decision makers on what they need to do to improve the state of adolescent reproductive health in Kenya.
These advocacy stories were written by six (6) young Kenyans and feature a diverse range of SRHR issues including but not limited to Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), access to safe and legal abortion, health financing, Youth Friendly Services, LGBTQ+ inclusion, Meaningful Youth Participation in SRHR legislation and budget advocacy.
Special thanks to our contributors Doris Kathia, Titus Adika, Purity Nthiana, Evelyn Odhiambo, Alvin Mwangi, and Cynthia Akoth for immortalizing your words for the benefit of all the Kenyan young people in need of reproductive justice.
We also remain grateful to the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) through Hewlett for the technical and financial support in our quest for a world where the reproductive health and rights of young people are protected, fulfilled and respected.
