Provide sustainable support

We build on sustainable relationships – both with our partner countries and with our donors. Many of you have trusted us for many years as sustaining members, helping us to deliver our vital work reliably and continually. Even a small, regular contribution can make a big difference to the lives of young people.

Together we can strengthen young people’s sexual and reproductive rights! Your regular donation gives you and us planning security and saves on administrative costs. It enables us to provide long-term support for young people’s education, health services and access to modern contraceptives. Every contribution counts to support their empowerment and health.

Support our work for a world where young people can make their own choices about their future. Make a regular donation now for sexual and reproductive rights – for a brighter, more equal future for all.

Yes, we welcome regular donations! Regular support gives us more planning security as it allows us to plan for the long term and support projects on an ongoing basis.

Donations are the foundation of our work and we are grateful for any amount. A particular advantage of regular donations is that they give us more planning certainty with less administration, which of course benefits the projects.

You can make an unrestricted donation or choose which of our four areas you would like to support (political dialogue, youth empowerment, education and contraception, gender equality). If you have a particular project that you are passionate about, you can also choose to donate to that project.

In addition to financial support, you can also make a valuable contribution by actively participating in events or spreading our messages on social media. Every form of support is welcome and helps to promote our work. Take a look at our other donation options to find the right type of donation for you.
