Let’s Talk Campaign

We are so excited to be supported UNESCO on the “Let’s Talk!” campaign aimed at reducing Early Unintended Pregnancy (EUP) across 21 countries in the East and Southern African region. In November 2019, UNESCO, UNFPA, and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) launched the revised Re-admission Policy alongside UNESCO’s Early and Unintended Pregnancy (EUP) campaign “Let’s talk!”. HeR Liberty is conducting activities under the EUP Campaign supported by UNESCO in Mchinji, Nkhatabay, and Machinga Districts.

HeR Liberty will further localize a booklet on EUP produced by UNESCO in Zimbabwe into a “Get Up and Speak Out” (GUSO) guide for young people which will also contain youth-friendly information and key messages on the revised Readmission Policy.

HeR Liberty is engaging with six influential champions from both the national and district level. They are influential individuals who are promoting the revised Readmission Policy and EUP campaign to address EUP. Champions include District youth leaders, local celebrities, Members of Parliament, and traditional leaders as follows;
