'Empowering Oaxacan women to prevent teenage pregnancies'


Mission Statement

Our diploma project aims to empower and educate young women so as to promote freedom of choice in and, above all, prevent unwanted teenage pregnancies. We believe that education and information is the cornerstone of sexual reproductive rights. With your support, we will train women in indigenous communities so that they can run workshops with the local population aimed at fighting the causes of teenage pregnancy.
