ASTRA Youth joins WGNRR!

The ASTRA Youth Network joined the Women's Global Network for Reproductive Rights

WGNRR is a southern-based global network that builds and strengthens movements for sexual and reproductive health, rights (SRHR) and justice. Their work is grounded in the realities of those who most lack economic, social and political power. WGNRR works to realise the full sexual and reproductive health and rights of all people, with a particular focus on the most marginalised. 

Two new members!

The ASTRA Youth Network welcomed two new members into the Network: The Family Planning and Sexual Health Association from Lithuania and The Family Planning Association from Moldova. ASTRA Youth has now 13 member organizations from 12 countries and two individual members. 


The Changemakers

ASTRA Youth was invited to attend the You Act: European Youth Network for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights workshop "Changemakers Workshop" for young SRHR activists which was held from the 14th to the 16th of October in Warsaw, Poland. The workshop followed the EuroNGOs conference Future Perspectives on Development Cooperation - Putting SRHR on the Right Track and was supported by UNFPA and EuroNGOs. Through organizing the Changemakers workshop, YouAct aimed to bring youth participants working with youth-led and youth-serving SRHR organizaitons together with young people from other movements to share, collaborate and build partnership.
