CAN’T ATTEND THIS EVENT?

Meeting Fellow organizations such as Projet Jeune Leader and sharing the important work they do to improve access to Sexual & Reproductive Health Education worldwide is one important way you can help. 

If you can’t attend,  another way to help is to MAKE A DONATION which will support our Gratitude Network Program and allow more Social Impact Leaders to join our One-Year Scaling-Up Curriculum.

“When women are educated about their sexual and reproductive rights, they become agents of change and advocates for a better world.”
