Triggering Active Involvement of Men in Family Planning

Family planning is a popular phenomenon among women; the literate and illiterate, rural and urban.  However, many women however empowered they may be, do not get the necessary support from their spouses, and they end up bearing children that they can hardly take care of. Some women actually receive intimidation and threats from their partners, who pester them to have more children, most times against their own wish. 

We believe that a couple having more children than they can fend for is the initial cause of poverty at the household level, characterised by poor quality or no education as well as poor standards of living for children. 

Hence, we are reaching out to men, young and old, married and unmarried, to educate them about the benefits of having a manageable family and how they can actively get involved in family planning.
