Family Planning

Family planning is an advocacy project focusing on formulation of policies to enable provision of family planning information and services. The strategy of the project aims to support the rights of women and girls to decide, freely, and for themselves, whether, when, and how many children they want to have’. This is with the realization that when a woman bears children too closely together, too early or too late in life, the health of the mother and baby are at risk. The organization together with the county ministry of health and other stakeholders have been able to advocate for an allocation of funds for FP information and services.

The organization has since been able to advocate for the county government of Kajiado to allocate funds for Family Planning information and services while supporting the drafting of a 5-year coasted Implementation Plan for family planning for the county.

ENAI – Africa seeks to support the rights of women and girls to decide, freely, and for themselves, whether, when, and how many children they want to have. When a woman bears children too closely together, too early or too late in life, the health of the mother and baby are at risk. Enabling couples and individuals to determine whether, when and how often to have children is vital to safe motherhood, healthy families and prosperous communities. Mrs. Agnes Kesene the chairlady of the women groups at Naretoi thinks that family planning is good and it enables women regain their strength back after delivery and even be able to educate their children. "I was born long time ago, and there were no methods of family planning so instead we used the natural methods." She narrates. "When your husband saw the baby is able make a few steps as learn to walk he definitely knew it was the right time to make another baby." She continues.

Agnes feels  that this generation is lucky to have family planning methods and therefore our women should embrace it. "children are a precious gift from God but when spaced appropriately, then the precious gift will have the best in life", she concludes.
