The Y-Moves project will increase the capacity of children and youth, especially girls and young people, to act as agents of change in the implementation of sexual and reproductive health rights in society and in the prevention of gender-based sexual violence. Through this project, the community, especially parents and responsible individuals, will have a positive attitude towards reproductive health and they will support girls and young women through joint initiatives in promoting reproductive health, creating a conducive environment in the community, especially for girls. It will work to change social norms that limit girls' mobility and participation.
