By midmorning, the sun heats the beaches of Jaguzi, a small island in Uganda. Fishermen find relief under the shade of a large tree. Behind them, Lake Victoria stretches for more than 200 miles.

Dorothy was married and pregnant by 18. By 22, she had five children. That’s what happens when you are a woman living with no choice about your body.
From time to time, I’m asked the question, “Why do you do the work that you do?” In turn, I ask “Why wouldn’t I want to do the work I do?”

Pathfinder’s “mCenas!” is a first for Mozambique—a text message education campaign that provides contraceptive information to youth (15-24 years old).
