Fatimah now feels that she has improved her social skills: “I am now more social. I have new knowledge and found new friends. I learned about leadership and feel confident to speak out more.” Fatimah continues: “I understand a lot more about SRHR now and when I hang with my friends I can share my knowledge with them. It’s good that I can give them this knowledge, especially those who have false perceptions about sexual health and rights.”
Fatimah has no regret that she joined ARI: “ARI discusses youth issues in fun and interesting ways. This is important, because we are agents of change who can influence people and make them realize that young people’s health is important, knowledge is important and rights are important.” Fatimah also adds that being a member of ARI means that you are included in an environment that is supportive of change.
