Our ongoing program is dedicated to promoting awareness, understanding, and advocacy related to individual sexual and reproductive rights.
We form close-knit groups of 15 women, meticulously designed to optimize personal engagement and active participation. In these groups, each participant has the chance to voice her thoughts, share personal experiences, and ask questions, fostering a trusting environment and bolstering confidence. This intimate setting creates a safe space where sensitive issues related to sexual and reproductive health can be discussed openly.
Our approach to education is intergenerational, bringing together women of different age groups in each cohort. This fosters a diversity of experiences and perspectives, facilitating mutual learning and enriching discussions.
Through this inclusive, engaging, and transformative educational model, we strive for individuals to catalyze societal change. We believe that by fostering a comprehensive understanding of our sexual and reproductive rights, every woman can effectively exercise and advocate for these rights, contributing significantly to the eradication of harmful cultural practices and the creation of a safer, more equitable society.
