How It All Began…

By Nebila Abdulmelik

A number of youth delegates from various countries across the continent, including Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria and Zambia were brought together for a Women Deliver Regional Consultation that took place in late March 2012 in Kampala, Uganda addressing issues of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) with a particular focus on achieving MDGs 4 and 5 .

The youth delegates who convened at that meeting decided that the advocacy would not begin and end at that meeting, but that the resources, information, knowledge gained needed to be shared and acted upon. This blog is a venue by which sharing experiences, opportunities, actions, good practices can take place. We invite you to submit blog posts, which you can do so by submitting your piece to

Join us in the struggle to ensure that SRHR is realized for African youth all over the continent, so that we leave a legacy for our future generations and ensure that Africa is in the best state it can be, because it deserves nothing less!

Follow the conversation, connect with us on twitter @youthdeliver and on facebook.

Let’s keep the fire burning!
