DSW Invests in young people –

They are our global future

Discover DSW

We are committed to achieving our vision of a healthy and sustainable world in which all young people, especially girls and young women, can fully realise their true potential. Central to our mission is championing young people’s access to youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services, and supporting sustainable and rights-based population development.

WHAT WE'RE WORKING FOR

DSW has a mission to support young people living in countries of poverty overcome the incredible obstacles that stand in their way – in particular issues to do with SRHR, gender-based discrimination, and coercive practices that disproportionately affect girls and young women.

HOW WE WORK

We work hand-in-hand with young people, promote an enabling environment, and foster meaningful and inclusive participation. We advocate at local, national, and international political levels to advance SRHR policies wherever we can.

WHO WE WORK FOR

For over 25 years DSW has worked with young people in ensuring access to SRHR information, services, and supplies, and supporting community outreach focused on developing peer education, life skills, leadership, advocacy, and economic empowerment.

WANT TO KNOW MORE

Our staff in Europe, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, work hard to advance access to SRHR and empower young people. From stories of overcoming personal tragedies, to SRHR and global health advocacy explainers, keep up-to-date with all the latest via our blog!
