What sparked your passion for family planning?

The passion to see a healthy family and well bieng of my fellow community members once they have planned families its what sparked me to advocate for family planning to ensure improved family health as well as increased investment in family planning so as to end infant mortality rate.

Give one or two examples of how you display leadership in your family planning work.:

I started family planning started when i was just 14 years in 2008, grew in a family of 15 sisters, I started making cultural and religious poems and every coin i used to make i invested it in growing my group of under 18 years (UTOPIA) and i started to massively win attraction of the public to come for my health dialogues, this is how i got started and currently i make youth camps of over 1,000 youth per event /per village including mothers, I have also mobilized over 56 SRHR business clubs.

If you are named a winner of 120 under 40, how will you use this new platform and the $1000 grant to advance your work? :

I will use $1,000 to procure a mobile tent for the Family planning outreaches to supplement my Youth truck deliver both information and services in the tent during outreaches.
