We Speak podcast

June 27, 2024

Welcome to We Speak, an informative and empowering podcast series produced by Hivos’ We Lead program. We Lead strengthens the influence and position of young women whose sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are neglected the most.

We Speak is more than a standard podcast; it’s a platform within the We Lead program designed to spark conversations, inspire change, and highlight the experiences of young women in all their diversities. Through candid discussions, expert insights, and personal stories, we strive to create a space where young women can speak up, be heard, and drive positive transformation within their communities.

In our inaugural episode, we explore the theme of local ownership: how communities can influence the SRHR narratives that affect them and lead initiatives to defend their rights. Our guests discuss the importance of local leadership, community engagement, and the empowerment of young women to become advocates for their own health and rights.

Join us as we Speak Up, Stand Up, and Lead the way towards a world where young women have the right to make informed decisions about their own bodies and future.
