Overview
2018–Present

Supporting Family Planning and Abortion Services, locally known as Impacto, has improved gender equality in nine districts in two provinces in Mozambique (Tete and Manica provinces) so that adolescent girls and young women can exercise their rights to bodily integrity (including the right to live free from sexual and gender based violence and to choose when and whom to marry) and sexual and reproductive health (including access to rights-based contraceptive and safe and legal abortion services).

Project Activities


  • Increase adolescent girls and young women’s (AGYW) knowledge on sexual and reproductive health and rights, negotiation skills, leadership capabilities, and social cohesion through small group activities for girls, household visits, and school-based activities, conducted with the support of rural mentors and urban activists from the local partners’ associations Fundacao Apoio Amigo (FAA) and Jossoalp, among others.
  • Decrease harmful practices, sociocultural norms, and beliefs that limit AGYW’s decision making and control over their SRH, sexuality, and bodily integrity through interventions involving community leaders and influencers to generate a meaningful transformation in favor of AGYW’s rights and gender equality.
  • Improve provision of and access to youth friendly contraceptive, safe and legal abortion, and SGBV services by upgrading referral systems and provision of services in the ‘’last mile’’.
  • By the end of the project (2024) we expect to have increased modern contraceptive use among AGYW by 10%; increased the proportion of women who want to delay or space their birth by 10%, and reduced the number of early marriages by 10%.
