I was scared of talking about abortion because I am a church leader ... I started talking to women one by one and the response was overwhelming. I immediately knew there was a need ... I organised for a safe abortion training right in my church and I never regretted it.
— Community Leader trained by SAAF grantee in Kenya
“Initially [the police chief] was very negative, and didn’t want to be identified as pro-choice. But one day we were having a public event ... [with] about 300 people present, and he took the mic and said that ... If [women and girls] have an unwanted pregnancy, they should not keep quiet, but go to a skilled health provider. It was a breakthrough.”
— success by SAAF grantee in Uganda
