The Yes I Do (YID) program is a joint program of AMREF, CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality, KIT (Royal Tropical Institute), Plan Nederland, and Rutgers WPF, and their local partners in Africa and Asia. YID aims for a world in which adolescent girls can freely decide if, when and whom to marry, when and with whom to have children, and are protected from female genital mutilation and cutting (FGM/C). To achieve this goal, the YID program has five different pathways of change: changing the community attitude towards early and forced marriages, teenage pregnancies and FGM/C, ensuring meaningful youth participation (MYP), Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), economic empowerment of young women and girls, and advocacy. The YID program is implemented in seven countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique, Pakistan and Indonesia. YID is a partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and will run from 2016-2020.
