From my experience it seems that when speaking of sexual and reproductive health and rights for young people, in certain countries it is more often than not assumed that you are speaking of married people. While I do not disagree with some of the benefits of waiting with being sexually active until marriage, the reality is different. If only all young people around the world would be educated on consent, contraception and all other aspects of SRHR, I believe that much more young people would reach their full potential in society. What makes CHOICE unique is that there are young people in charge as they fight for the rights of young people. Young people are tired of standing on the sideline, we are taking up our rightful place at the proverbial table as we speak!
