My Elevator Pitch

My name is Sally Mboumien, a social advocate from Bawock- Cameroon. I seek to empower women and girls by educating them about their sexual and reproductive health rights. When women and girls have unbiased information, counseling, and support, they will no longer be limited by fear, ignorance and disease. Building on my work with 400 girls in my community, I am creating social clinics to support more girls and women.

I love what you're doing here sally! Women and girls need to feel comfortable with their anatomy and ways to protecting themselves.  Keep up my sister.

Hello Tam, thanks for those words of encouragement. Frankly it is a wonderful moment for me because it is in this work that i find healing to myself which was broken by guilt from my crude abortion and violence (emotional) from marriage.
