DSW Kenya envisions a world where all youth – especially girls and young women – live free from disease and make independent and informed choices over their sexual and reproductive lives with full access to sexuality education, health services and modern contraceptives. 
We do this by advocating with policy makers for investment in domestic resources and policies for youth-friendly SRHR, through multisectoral approaches. 
Through the DSW Youth Empowerment Strategic Approach (YESA), and the Young Adolescent Empowerment Strategy (YAES), we work with young people to raise their awareness on sexual reproductive health and rights, gender equality and access to modern contraceptives and to strengthen their livelihoods. 
The DSW online platform provides access to accurate, reliable SRHR information to young people, and connects them to health facilities.

“We must continue to ensure the needs of the youth are adequately considered in county and national development plans. After all, they are the single-largest demographic group in Kenya (34% are aged 10-24 years old)”
