Sexual Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR)
Women’s awareness of sexual reproductive health is very key. The women staying in slums and informal settlements tend to suffer reproductive health crises because they lack sufficient information and resources to guide them. The main objective of this project is to engage the women in slums to raise their awareness on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). ROSE CBO’s has collaborated with a few policymakers, counselors to get insight and support in implementing different programs in the target areas by engaging women aged between 18-50years and their partners as well
- The women’s partners are not supportive enough of such SRHR programs and the women in this setting value their husband’s advice.
- Some women are afraid of the stigma they will face if they open up about domestic challenges ie GBV
- Lack of enough finances to access quality reproductive health care services
Twice a week, ROSE makes contact with the slum women under ROSE CBO to find out how they are doing, advising and counseling them. There are also projects being piloted under this thematic area of SRHR. The women are also free to call him anytime they need advice. The women who cannot read or write and understand what the lessons are about are assigned to someone from the group who can speak their mother tongue to help them grasp better so that we don’t leave them behind
