Strengthening Partnerships: From Local to Global

We make grants and provide professional support to community organizations in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and Latin America. These partner groups operate programs that serve thousands of women and young people in their own communities. We help our partners advocate with their governments to secure the policies and funding needed to build healthy and safe communities. Since our founding, we have helped build and strengthen nearly 80 grassroots organizations in more than 20 countries. The experiences and expertise of our partners informs our advocacy at the global level.

 
 

Finding Innovative Solutions for Sexual Health in Brazil

In Brazil, our partner Reprolatina works to educate young people about their sexual and reproductive health and rights. Reprolatina reaches youth directly in local communities and online through social media and its website, Living Adolescence, which receives an average of 2,000 visits every day and has been endorsed by Brazil’s Ministry of Health.

Reprolatina also collaborates with health centers and public schools in towns near mining sites throughout Brazil. In one such town, Barro Alto, the number of adolescent girls giving birth dropped from 40 percent to 10 percent.
