ASPIRE project in Nigeria is a five-year (2021-2026) initiative supported by Global Affairs Canada that aims to improve the realization of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) for adolescent girls and women, including vulnerable populations, in Bauchi and Sokoto states. Aligned with Canada's Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP) and Plan International’s Global Policy: Gender Equality and Inclusion (GE&I), ASPIRE is guided by a feminist, multi-sectoral approach to improving women’s and girls’ agency and leadership, informing and empowering adolescents and young people with the right information and economic leverage to demand adequate SRHR information and services and advocate for government duty bearers to establish strong policies and programs that respond to their demands. ASPIRE will pursue partnerships that bring together government, civil society, coalitions, networks, national partners and associations to promote an integrated approach to SRHR, especially for adolescents.
