Sephamid Bridge Foundation (SBF) is a youth led and Christian non-governmental organization registered in 2015. We are currently working in Ekiti State rural communities and our work includes: adolescents’
sexual education and reproductive health services, offering dropout teenage mothers access to education and economic empowerment through training and skills building and engaging relevant stakeholders and leaders at all levels for policy development and resource mobilization. SBF also promotes healthy relationships among adolescents, and guides parents and teachers on how best to engage them.
SBF works is in important right now and need for SBF’s activities growing by the fact that, one third (36.5 million) of Nigeria’s total population of 123 million are youth between the ages of 10 and 24. By 2025, the number of Nigerian youth will exceed 57 million. Lack of sexual health information and services places these young people at risk for pregnancy, abortion, sexually transmitted infections (STI),and HIV/AIDS. In addition, early marriage and childbearing limit youth’s educational and employment opportunities. Yet effective, innovative programs can provide youth with the sexual health information and services they need (Population Reference Bureau)
