“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own” – audre lorde
Millions of women around the world have no reproductive autonomy. This means they cannot choose how many children they have, or plan their future.
But MSI is here to change this. We are an NGO operating in 37 countries – reaching some of the world’s most vulnerable women – bringing access to safe, high-quality healthcare and rights. This includes everything from education about menstrual health so girls can stay in school when they have their periods, stigma-busting programs to change gender norms, and training public health nurses to provide life-saving emergency care for women who have been forced to terminate a pregnancy using dangerous and unsafe methods.
95c of every dollar donated goes directly to the field, allowing us to send funds where they are most needed.
And the impact goes even further than that: research has found that every dollar spent on family planning services saves over $9 in public sector expenditures, making it one of the most cost-effective interventions to help low- and middle- income countries to meet the
Sustainable Development Goals.
