Adolescents Initiative for Reform

Adolescents Initiative for Reform (AIR)


The Adolescents Initiative for Reform (AIR) is an adolescent-led group founded from a HERVoice Fund sponsored project with Leap Girl Africa. This group aims to improve girls’ access to information about their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), train and strengthen their capacity to influence SRHR and HIV/AIDs biases and discriminatory laws or policy that exclude them in the implementation process. The lack of access to basic hygiene products and information on SRHR infringes on adolescent girls’ fundamental human rights and AIR strives for better SRHR outcomes and to decrease the chances of girls being involved in survival sex and other harmful practices that will negatively affect their education, development and wellbeing.
