Age appropriate sexuality education from a Muslim Kenyan perspective

On Kenya Muslim Youth Development Organization’s (KMYDO) intervention sites, family planning uptake has improved from 57% to 75% in Malindi and from 69% to 75% in Kilifi North, between 2015 and 2017 (DHIS2 data). KMYDO has championed the development and launch of six family planning costed implementation plans for Wajir, Kilifi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Lamu and Kwale counties and contributed to the subsequent introduction or increase of specific FP/RH budget lines. It works with 175 Muslim scholars, 982 Muslim women family planning champions, 1,670 peer educators in 72 madrassas. It has developed Amina Ali toolkit that encourages open discussion about sexuality and reproductive health among young people in the context of Muslim religious life.

For more information, Kenya Muslim Youth Development Organization and Faith to Action Network have developed a case story of this work. Read the full story here:
