By embracing a compassionate and inclusive approach,

we provide accessible family planning options, offer comprehensive abortion care with dignity, and promote value clarification to transform attitudes and ensure grassroots communities’ holistic well-being.

Services (Objectives)

Family planning, as a vital component of sexual and reproductive health, is intricately woven into our mission, vision, and values. We approach family planning not just as a service, but as a means to empower individuals, promote health, and strengthen communities.

To effect and execute family planning services, we adopt a holistic approach that aligns with our commitment to community rights and well-being. Here’s how we bring this objective to life:

  1. Inclusivity and Accessibility: We believe that every individual has the right to make informed decisions about their reproductive health. We ensure that family planning services are accessible to everyone, regardless of age, gender, socio-economic background, or location. Our services are designed to meet the diverse needs of our communities.

  2. Comprehensive Information: Education is the cornerstone of family planning. We provide accurate, evidence-based information about various contraceptive methods, their benefits, and potential risks. Our educational initiatives aim to dispel myths, address misconceptions, and empower individuals to make choices that align with their health goals and lifestyles.

  3. Counseling and Support: We recognize that family planning decisions are deeply personal. Our trained healthcare professionals offer confidential counseling to guide individuals and couples through their options. We encourage open conversations about family planning, addressing concerns and ensuring that choices are made freely and without coercion.

  4. Range of Contraceptive Methods: Our family planning services encompass a wide range of contraceptive methods, from traditional to modern, to cater to diverse preferences and needs. We provide information on hormonal methods, barrier methods, long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), and permanent methods, empowering individuals to select what suits them best.

  5. Respect for Autonomy: We champion the principle of bodily autonomy. Individuals have the right to decide when and how many children they wish to have. We respect these decisions and offer support to implement their chosen method safely and effectively.

  6. Post-Service Follow-Up: Our commitment doesn’t end after providing family planning services. We offer ongoing support, including follow-up appointments to address any concerns, monitor the chosen method’s effectiveness, and ensure the individual’s well-being.

  7. Community Engagement: Effective family planning requires a supportive community environment. We engage in community outreach and awareness campaigns to reduce stigmas and foster acceptance. Engaging community leaders, influencers, and families helps us create an environment where family planning is understood as a positive choice.

  8. Quality of Care: We maintain high standards of quality care in all our family planning services. Our healthcare providers are well-trained, and our facilities are equipped to offer safe and effective services.

In sum, our family planning services embody our dedication to upholding the rights, health, and well-being of individuals and communities. By offering comprehensive information, respectful care, and a range of options, we empower individuals to make choices that contribute to their health and future.

Comprehensive abortion care, as a fundamental aspect of sexual and reproductive health, is approached with a deep commitment to respecting the autonomy and well-being of grassroots individuals. Our execution of this service is rooted in several essential steps:

  1. Holistic Counseling: We initiate the process by providing comprehensive and empathetic counseling to the individuals seeking abortion care. This includes discussions about their physical health, emotional well-being, and overall circumstances.

  4. Privacy and Confidentiality: Recognizing the sensitive nature of the procedure, we maintain strict confidentiality. We create a safe and non-judgmental environment where individuals feel comfortable discussing their needs and concerns.

  5. Supportive Environment: Emotional support is a critical component of our approach. We provide emotional support before, during, and after the procedure, recognizing the potential emotional impact it can have on individuals.

  6. Post-Abortion Care: Our commitment doesn’t end with the procedure. We offer comprehensive post-abortion care to ensure individuals recover well and continue their sexual and reproductive health journey with confidence.

  7. Community Education: We believe in the power of education to destigmatize and create awareness. We engage in community outreach and education efforts to inform people about their sexual and reproductive health rights and choices, reducing misinformation and stigma.

  8. Advocacy for Policy Change: We advocate for policies that ensure individuals’ right to comprehensive abortion care, aiming to remove legal and social barriers that can impede access for grassroots communities.

  9. Collaborative Partnerships: We work collaboratively with other organizations, healthcare providers, and stakeholders to strengthen the network of support for comprehensive abortion care and sexual and reproductive health services.

  10. Monitoring and Evaluation: We continuously monitor and evaluate the quality of our services, incorporating feedback from individuals to enhance the effectiveness and responsiveness of our approach.

Ultimately, our execution of comprehensive abortion care is deeply rooted in respect for individual autonomy, health, and dignity. We strive to create a safe and supportive space where grassroots individuals can access the care they need while navigating a complex and sensitive aspect of their sexual and reproductive health journey.


Value clarification as an essential component of sexual and reproductive health services is approached with a profound understanding of the cultural, social, and individual perspectives that shape people’s attitudes. Our execution of value clarification aims to foster a respectful and empathetic dialogue, promoting healthy attitudes towards sexual and reproductive health:

  1. Culturally Sensitive Approach: We recognize that values and attitudes towards sexual and reproductive health are deeply influenced by cultural beliefs. Our approach respects and integrates cultural norms, ensuring that our messages resonate with grassroots communities while challenging harmful stereotypes.

  2. Inclusive Communication: Our communication is inclusive, addressing people of all backgrounds, ages, and genders. We utilize relatable language and scenarios to ensure that our messages are accessible and relatable to grassroots individuals.

  3. Empowerment through Education: We prioritize education as a means of empowering individuals. Our services provide accurate information about sexual and reproductive health, dispelling myths and misconceptions that may contribute to negative attitudes.

  4. Safe and Judgment-Free Spaces: We create safe spaces where individuals can openly express their thoughts and beliefs without fear of judgment. This environment encourages open discussions and allows individuals to explore their values without feeling pressured.

  5. Listening and Understanding: Our approach involves actively listening to the concerns and questions of grassroots individuals. By understanding their perspectives, we can address their values more effectively and provide information that resonates with their experiences.

  6. Promoting Informed Choices: We emphasize that value clarification is about making informed choices that align with one’s values. We provide information about various options and empower individuals to make decisions that respect their personal beliefs.

  7. Peer Sharing and Stories: Personal stories can be powerful tools for attitude change. We encourage grassroots individuals to share their experiences and stories, which can help break down barriers and create empathy among the community.

  8. Collaboration with Local Leaders: We collaborate with community leaders, influencers, and trusted figures to promote positive attitudes towards sexual and reproductive health. Local leaders can play a pivotal role in shifting cultural norms and values.

  9. Long-Term Engagement: Attitude change takes time. Our services are designed for long-term engagement, recognizing that values and beliefs may shift gradually. We remain committed to providing ongoing support and education.

  10. Measuring Impact: We regularly assess the impact of our value clarification initiatives through surveys, feedback, and qualitative assessments. This helps us tailor our approach and ensure that attitude change is taking place.

Ultimately, our execution of value clarification is grounded in respect for each individual’s autonomy, cultural context, and personal beliefs. By creating a safe and supportive environment for open discussions, providing accurate information, and fostering empathy, we work towards promoting positive attitudes that enable grassroots individuals to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health.
