Adolescent Health and Information Projects (AHIP)
Based in the northern city of Kano, where Sharia'h Islamic law—introduced at the state level in 2000—threatens women's human rights and limits all people's access to accurate information on sexuality and reproductive health, AHIP has forged critical partnerships with religious, traditional, and government leaders to ensure that adolescents have the information they need to make a healthy transition to adulthood. AHIP reaches out to young people in the community through a youth center, a newsletter, a peer education program operating in over 150 schools, and sports programs for both boys and girls. AHIP also operates four vocational centers for women that offer literacy and skills training, together with information on health and sexuality. IWHC supported AHIP from 1995 to 2009.
