say what?!

I see SRHR as one of the central themes within development. Especially concerning youth, since comprehensive knowledge of sex, gender, health and identity is crucial for growing up to be an empowered adult who him or herself can help their own country grow and develop. Losing out on SRHR knowledge can influence youth for the rest of their lives and continue the vicious cycle of poverty.

Also, youth is underrepresented in development in general. As the new generation, we should be empowered and capacitated to be active participants within NGOs and government, at least in themes concerning ourselves and our interests.

We should be empowered and capacitated to be active participants.
