Community outreach, Abesan, Nigeria - Elizabeth Talatu Williams

Community outreaches continue to remain a viable means of reaching young people especially at the grassroot level with life saving information on sexual reproductive health and rights.

My last activity with the Unfpa Ypp Lagos involved a community outreach at Abesan community in Alimosho.

This was the first intervention they have had in that community. We educated the girls and young women in attendance on pregnancy prevention inclusive of COVID-19 prevention.

Dignity kits comprising of WASH items such as sanitary pads, bathing soap, hand sanitizer, deodorant, slippers, face masks were distributed.

We must not forget the importance of having diverse means of reaching young people who are also diverse.
