Thank you Ashley for your comment / request.
Basically, our idea concept is a three pronged trident.
ONE;- Our Work Force Development (WfD) program which already we are currently implementing on the ground.
TWO;- We propose to undertake Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) program which will be integrated to our already existing WfD program.
THREE;- The Objectives of these two integrated programs will result to our anticipated Positive Youth / Women Development (PY / WD) outcomes.
Summary:
Our WfD involves;- Training Youth Groups on Assembly of FEC Stoves,
Training Girls / Women o sales and distribution of of Solar PV Lamps,
Training of Women on Clay Ceramic moulding,
Predisposing these communities to be Employers by impacting Skills.
but to mention a few.

We propose SRHR program which will entail the following;
-Training Youth and Women on the Sexuality and Rights,
-Training and Advocacy against Female Genital Mutilations (FGMs),
-Voluntary Testing and Counseling to minimize Stigma and reduce prevalence rates,
- Incorporate Comprehensive SRHR Care Education to all our intended beneficiaries
e.t.c

Our Anticipated Positive Youth / Women Development Outcomes will be the Milestones in which the success of our IDEA CONCEPT will be measured.
for detailed, elaborate description refer to our Idea Concept.
Thank once again and we look forward to engage with you further in case of any Clarification and / or elaboration.
