Overview

In Niger, the My Rights, My Voice (MRMV) Project intervenes in the Tillabery region, specifically in the departments of Say, Téra and Torodi. This project is implemented in collaboration with three other Oxfam partners, meanely: JCI Niger, ASO EPT and DIMOL, all charged to coach, train and support young people in their actions in defense of their rights and access to services related to education and sexual and reproductive health. Working toward an ideal where young people, both in school and out, girls and boys, aged between 12 and 35, become active agents of change so that their voices are heard and recognized in Nigerien society as legitimate.The fundamental objective of the My Rights, My Voice project is to promote the rights to education and sexual and reproductive health of young people. So it is to get young people to conduct advocacy work themselves and for themselves under the guidance of these partners that capitalize the promising experiences.
