CHASE Africa are past recipients of support from St James's 'Away Giving' scheme.
Please click here to read their recently published guide on Supporting Community and Ecosystem Health which may be of interest to the St James's community particularly as we look forward to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), 1st-12th November 202, in Glasgow.
The aim of this guide is to outline the huge, unmet need for family planning that still exists in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (including all countries in East Africa); highlight the barriers to accessing and using family planning that exist for many girls and women; explain why conservation organisations are uniquely placed to introduce such activities to the communities they work with and provide guidance for any organisation that wishes to start a programme to tackle this issue. It is based on CHASE Africa’s experience over the past ten years of supporting local partners to run, and in several cases set-up, community health and family planning programmes in Kenya and Uganda. Whilst some of the guidance is context specific, the guide highlights how programmes could be adapted to other situations and circumstances.
