Habibu is a qualified Health Care Provider who has been in struggle by given free brith pills to see that un-control number of children has come to an end in the Northern part of Nigeria – Gidado Muhammad, Founder at M.G.A Foundation
Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

After I wrote a paper on how population density of individuals could be known using different techniques. That was when I was about to start to give my own contribution in family planning as a whole. The document had a total number of 1852 viewers 193 comments from 72 different countries. I noted how lack of practicing Family Planning methods lead death in large number.
In terms of service delivery, my record has shown me that 780 out of the women i gave planning oral pills for free had made use of it in a positive way, 340 had clearly understood what i taught them on family planning methods

What sparked your passion for family planning?

As a Northerner, we normally practice polygamous marriage, producing large number of children. It is so painful how northern girls are married early (15 years) and die when given birth. I took the bold step to ensure that I reach as many young girls and their parents as possible with information on SRHR , the effect of early marriage and importance of girls child education it self.

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

One of the good qualities of a leader is Honesty and Dedication. Here, what I always believe is the fact that despite the tight schedule I have, given many free Family Planning oral pills, mentored more than 750 girls in rural communities on life skills, basic literacy, and numeracy. I was given the privilege to led training for youth led organizations to enable them give SRHR information to young people.

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? :

The platform will serve as a medium through which my action will travel to far destinations. I will use the $1000 to build a free Family planning Center which will cost me more than the grant it self. I will source for matching funds to create a toll free line for answering questions from people in rural areas for free, provide birth Oral pills, IUDs, Impalon, injections. I will also implement what other Family Planning Champions do in their countries, adopt those methods in my community
