Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

I am a youth who unlearned and "relearned" those things that guide me to live life at my youthful age. This motivated me to move closer to the teenagers and young adult because of the sensitivity of their learning stage.

My work is majorly on secondary school and tertiary institution students. Part of my advocacy work is on them. For them to value life and and learn the best way to live peacefully with each other as family as the basis of family planning.

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 extend my advocacy work to about 10 Secondary schools and 4 tertiary institutions ( from the present 3 secondary schools and 1 tertiary institution) within my region in order to bring my message closer to the targeted audience.

Short Drama competition will be organized between the selected schools in order to make family planning more real to the participants.
