Description and results

Description

The project aims to promote sexual and reproductive health and adolescents’ and youth’s rights in Benin, by helping to reduce child, early and forced marriage in the Alibori and Borgou departments. To contribute to putting an end to child and early forced marriage and protect adolescent girls’ rights, the project works with communities to develop and promote local solutions. Capacity building of local actors and advocacy carried out by youth aim to create an environment conductive to the changes necessary to social and gender norms in order to end harmful traditional practices. Project activities include: (1) training on women’s and girls’ rights given to women, girls, men, boys and community and traditional leaders; (2) training health workers on adolescent sexual and reproductive health; and (3) providing complete sexual and reproductive health care for adolescents designed for youth.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased utilization of adolescent sexual and reproductive health care services by adolescents, girls and boys, in the Alibori and Borgou departments; (2) enhanced protection of adolescent girls’ rights, in the Alibori and Borgou departments; and (3) strengthened government and civil society policies and programs that respond to child, early and forced marriage, gender-based violence, and adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights.
