Trek for Contraception is for everyone
Women's Plans Foundation inaugural Virtual Trek is fundraising for contraception and reproductive health in PNG.
In the spirit of trekking PNG’s Kokoda Track (96km), you can walk/run/cycle any distance, anywhere, anytime from International Women's Day 8 March to Mother's Day 8 May. It doesn’t matter where or how you ‘trek’.
Set your challenge (7-96km) and get your family and friends to join you and/or sponsor you. Your support will improve the lives of young girls, women and families in PNG.
Contraception is The Game Changer—WHY?
A foundation for women and girls’ empowerment, their health, education, economic opportunities.
Critical for the alleviation of poverty, preserving the environment and population sustainability.
PNG—WHY? PNG has profound challenges including:
A population doubling every generation.
High level of mythology, distrust and cultural taboos about contraception.
Very difficult access to family planning services and significant sexual violence.
