World Contraception Day, 26th September, is a day that aims to improve awareness of contraception around a vision where every pregnancy is a planned one. To get closer to this goal, NaturalCycles’ has launched the #LifeChangingOptions campaign as the company believes that every women should have the right to decide whether or not she wishes to get pregnant.
Statistics show that 225 million* young women who want to prevent pregnancies has no access to contraception, which is a barrier they face that affects their lives and future. When girls have the choice they have children later, which means they can finish their education, become financially independent and contribute to society. It also means they can space their births further apart, which means healthier lives for them and their babies.**
At NaturalCycles, we believe that given the opportunity women in developing countries could change the world. Half of the world’s population today – over 3.5 million – is under 30, mostly living in developing countries. Their choices and opportunity defines the present and future of our world.
We want to make it work for every girl by giving them the opportunity to make a choice and decide freely for themselves whether or not they wish to become pregnant. Let’s transform their world and give them the opportunity to change ours!
This is where you can help, for every share of the hashtag #LifeChangingOptions, NaturalCycles’ will donate a condom to girls in the developing world.
Please help us start this conversation and let’s see how many condoms we can donate!
