For women’s rights

MaterialsThroughout the country, March 8, 2018

BFPA starts a campaign with coffee fortune slips in the month of March. The campaign provokes people to think on the relevance every woman and girl to have equal access to family planning information and services.

• Ensure stable future for yourself, in order your children to have bright future;
• You can make the choice to be happy;
• Health, happiness, knowledge, comfort…;
• Children are not expected to give birth to children! Let’s support the most vulnerable;
• Early pregnancy is risky for the health, the life and the professional realization. Everyone must have the right to make a choice;
• We can’t change the whole world at once, but we can start with something small, changing the life of thousands;
• All children have potential; let’s give them the chance to develop it.

The initiative of the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association is realized in several popular cafes with the contribution of young people from Stara Zagora, Pleven, Ruse, Vratsa and Plovdiv and thus makes possible the messages of the campaign to reach more people in Bulgaria. The action is a part of the global efforts to end early school dropouts, for the right of everyone to preserve its reproductive health, for the rights of women to education, health services, equal opportunities and better life. Because knowledge is power and poverty without education reproduces poverty.

Global campaign #idecide #АЗрешавам

Every government can give every woman the contraceptive care she needs for less than $2 a month. If you’re poor, by being denied contraceptive care – you’re five times more likely to be forced into pregnancy.
