In looking at this years ‘World Sexual Health Day’ , we asked a few of our key Youth Advocates on what they would like to shed light on and here is a few words from a change-maker; SRHR Youth Advocate!
𝗝𝗮𝗰𝗸𝘆 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗲𝗹𝘂𝗺 is one of our youth advocates who was selected to participate in the Out of School Family Life Education roll out in Port Vila. Jacky is one amazing youth advocate out of many who are pushing barriers on sexuality and conversations around inclusive sexual reproductive health everyday.
Jacky says, ” 𝗧𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵 𝗺𝘆 𝗼𝘄𝗻 𝗼𝗯𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲 𝗺𝘆 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆 – 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝗻𝗳𝗮𝗰𝘁 𝗯𝘂𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗲𝗱, 𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗴𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗱.
