On Monday, March 15, 2021, Marie Stopes International Organisation Nigeria (MSION) and Kids and Teens Resources Centre visited the Ondo State National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation Camp in Ikare to educate corps members on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.
During the session with the MSION team, corps members learned more about sexual and reproductive health including, where and how to get services.
At Marie Stopes International Organisation Nigeria (MSION), we have consistently provided support for young adults needing answers to sexual health questions or dealing with sexual health challenges. These include concerns about unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections, menstrual hygiene, and other sexual and reproductive health issues that young people experience in Nigeria.
At the close of the activity, we reached 986 (467 males, 519 females) corps members.
The NYSC is a program set up by the Nigerian government to involve Nigerian graduates in nation-building and development. Since 1973, graduates of universities and polytechnics have taken part in the National Youth Service Corps program for one year.
