Through our SRHR programs and evidence based research, The Umbrella of Hope is contributing to improved sexual and reproductive health (SRH) for adolescents, youths and women.
The Umbrella of Hope Foundation is an emerging global leader in the health of very young adolescents, youths and women. Almost invisible from global health programs, we focus on these age groups through the following strategies: ensuring access to comprehensive sexuality education, strengthening menstrual hygiene management, delaying early marriage, improving access to health services, strengthening protective factors, such as communication with parents, and supporting the formation of positive gender norms. This compilation of program strategies fills a critical information and service gap and equips younger adolescents, youths and women with the ability to navigate the challenges and opportunities during their transition through puberty and adulthood.
Increasing Access and Quality of Sexual and Reproductive Health Services through community Participation
The Umbrella of Hope community participation approach engages the whole community and health service providers in jointly defining barriers to quality adolescent health services, and empowers youth and providers to work together to implement innovative and feasible solutions.
