As Domestic Abuse Rises, U.K. Failings Leave Victims in Peril

For many abuse survivors, lockdown means living in terror. In Southern and Eastern regions of Africa, domestic relationships have been particularly vulnerable to such effects. Join the conversation at letstalkeup.com to ensure that young people know their rights and are empowered to make decisions regarding sexuality, health, and education.

Au fin-fond de la jungle: une mission de secours à Kabiti

Kudos to partner West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change Program for showing how comic books can be a tool to build a new generation of conservation heroes! The second book in their comic series, “Into The Jungle: A Rescue Mission in Kabiti” tells the real story of wildlife trafficking in West Africa, but with a creative twist using the region’s endangered animals as both heroes and villains. This weaves an engaging story sure to inform and entertain both kids and adults. Communications products such as these are critical to making people more aware of the scale of wildlife trafficking. It is a billion-dollar industry threatening our biodiversity, our economies, our livelihoods, and our security.

Globally, 47 million women are expected to lose access to modern contraceptives due to the #COVID19 pandemic. If something is not done to prevent this, many of those without access could be adolescent girls and young women in our communities, leading to even higher rates of early and unintended pregnancy.

Let’s talk about how access to contraceptives is an essential healthcare provision which we must ensure continues throughout the pandemic. Youth need access to SRHR information and services now. #LetsTalkAtHome https://letstalkeup.com/
