This end evaluation covers the period from the start of the project (April 2019) until end of March 2022, which marked the end of three years of project implementation.

However, the project has been too short to measure community impact, in the sense of the number ofwomen accessing safe abortion services, the number of lives saved, and so on. The community component of the project was implemented in Kajiado County. This county was chosen because of the high levels of teenage and unwanted pregnancies that have been documented in the area.
