As the world marks World’s Contraception day 2021 on 26 September 2021, African Girls Empowerment Network, a young feminine frontline women’s rights organization in Nigeria is calling for women’s right to pregnancy by choice.

On this day, African Girls Empowerment Network is launching a new campaign #BelleByChoice, and we invite you to join us.

The #BelleByChoice aims to raise awareness and help young women and adolescent girls access contraception & family planning commodity.

Our #BelleByChoice Campaign is an initiative that advances the sexual & reproductive health & rights of young women and girls with the focus on access to modern contraception and family planning commodities to end unintended pregnancy and unsafe abortion among young women and girls particularly those in the vulnerable and displacement setting and promote their bodily autonomy and sexual rights.

We believe that access to timely and nonjudgmental information and services on Sexual and Reproductive Health can help young women and adolescent girls particularly those at the displaced and hard to reach communities make informed decisions and choices on their reproductive health, avert irreparable damage or even death.

So through the #BelleByChoice Campaign, we aimed to raise awareness on the various contraceptive methods available and engage young women and girls as #BelleByChoice Promoters in their communities.

We also called for joint efforts and collaboration with relevant stakeholders to promote women’s sexual & reproductive health rights in the country.

We are calling on the women’s sexual rights advocates and civil society actors, development partners, and government to join our #BelleByChoiceMovement and together we will reduce the incidence of unwanted pregnancy and its attendant problem such as unsafe abortion, maternal mortality rate, girls’ school dropout, child marriage among others.

The partnership between the AGE network and Women First digital is to provide women access to digital platforms to get women in the rural and vulnerable setting.

The women and adolescent girl’s health and wellbeing should be encouraged and improved. Abortion should be nonjudgmental and should be an essential health care service.

African Girls Empowerment Network launches #BELLEBYCHOICE Campaign to celebrate World Contraception Day 2021.

Belle (Pregnancy) should be by choice and not by chance.
