Fabs believes that there is need to meaningfully engage Young people especially women in SRHR programming to ensure their needs are prioritized. We believe that young people have the capacity to advocate for access to SRHR services and information that directly affects their lives and communities. Our goal is to look beyond amplifying young people’s voices to supporting their action and decision-making. We believe that nothing for younger people without them, and nothing for women without them. We believe in choices that are tailored by those directly affected!
WHO WE ARE
Fabs is a youth-led and youth serving non profit organization that focuses on the empowerment of adolescents, young people and women with great emphasis on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), Gender-Based Violence, Young leaders’ empowerment, and life skills development. Fabs uses a number of strategies, approaches, and activities to meet its targets in the above-mentioned specialties. We also empower them to make informed and responsible choices especially about their sexuality and economic well being.
The most creative approach is the use of Media, Art, Music, and Drama to create awareness among our target populations.
