Specific problems I would like to address will be sexual health and tips to maintain a healthy lifestyle and relationship.

Name the three most important ways that your idea will address your identified problem(s).

Three ways that my idea will adress the identified problem is by giving interested individuals information, contraceptives and options. What I mean by options is basically alternatives if they are not satisied with the ones given to them by their environent.

How is your idea unique?

My idea is unique because it is using a similar theme as an already successful organization in the U.S. titled Planned Parenthood.
