Group photoMaya KumanovaBrussels, February 5-8 2015

Between Feb 5-8 was held the annual meeting of YSAFE, the European Youth Network of IPPF. The topic of this year’s meeting was Sustainable Development and Sexual and reproductive Health and Rights. The training was focused at helping the participants to understand what sustainable development is and how to apply it to their work as peer educators and sexual and reproductive rights advocates. This meeting was special because for the first time we had the chance to combine the event wit a month-long online education, which took place on the free online platform Schoology (https://www.schoology.com)

The Management board of YSAFE aims to facilitate the access to information, ideas and development potential by the means of the global network. Internet platforms are a key medium for the organization which covers 39 countries in Europe and Central Asia.
YSAFE strives to improve the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) of young people at national and regional level in Europe and Central Asia by:
- Ensuring meaningful youth participation in decision making and implementation at the level of the Member Associations, the Regional Office and the governance of IPPF EN and IPPF;
- Strengthening the capacity of its members to make their voice heard on SRHR;
- Facilitating the exchange of knowledge, skills and best practices;
- Joining forces with other youth organisations in initiatives at national, regional and international level.
As members of YSAFE the volunteers can participate in national and regional campaigns, projects and trainings. For more information:

Most significant change: Documenting stories

Dolna Banya, January 24-26, 2020

On January 26-28 BFPA organized a meeting of the teams working on the project „My body, my rights” from Sofia, Yambol and Montana. Representatives of the three locations shared their experiences from the implemented field activities. We discussed problems which health mediators, self-help group members and their partners face and paid special attention on possible ways and strategies for solving. Participants put accent on good practices that had been identified up to the moment. It was the perfect time to watch and discuss several videos, showing the fieldwork as well as image “memes” with messages, which show benefits of family planning.
Participants gave feedback also for the freshly prepared Manual for self-support groups and for the Health application for mobile devices, which will be useful in the future work on the project and after its ending. Divided into groups by locations the participants from Sofia, Yambol and Montana worked on possible ways of documenting stories for the most significant change of people’s lives as result of the work of project teams and health specialists.
