I’m Margaret Kabajwara the female Youth councilor Kabarole district. I’m now pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication at Uganda Pentecostal University (UPU) Mucwa- Fort Portal town.
I’ve liked PLANE’s programs of promoting Sexual Reproductive health Rights in both primary, secondary schools and tertiary institutions. The program has promoted awareness and continued sensitization among the youth who need such services to avoid /prevent unwanted pregnancies and early marries. I’m optimistic that if such programs go in rural areas, cases of the teenage pregnancies and school dropout will reduce.
I’ve also liked tuning in for their radio drama on VOT FM that looks at issues of GBV, children’s rights and environment protection. I call upon leaders in this region to work with PLANE in promoting gender related issues.
