Make Way Programme
Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE)
Everybody, including those who are most marginalised, should be able to realise their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
The five-year Make Way programme (2021-2025) aims to break down barriers to SRHR by promoting a new way of looking at, and organising, SRHR issues, through an intersectional lens. This means making overlapping vulnerabilities visible to understand their effects on people’s SRHR. Stickydot worked with the consortium to facilitate a self-assessment process with two main parts: a values clarification and second part that addressed intersectional preparedness.
“It is inspiring to contribute to a scientific research environment that remains anchored in the realities and interests of a variety of individuals. Collaborating with the public takes your scientific knowledge off the beaten track and challenges you to take a creative approach to your scientific practice. Go ahead: once you try participatory research, you won’t look back!”
At Stickydot, Florence provides support on citizen science and public engagement projects. Florence has been applying participatory approaches in the fields of environment and public health for over five years. She cares deeply about making every step of a scientific research project inclusive, creative and sustainable.
