Summary

About one-fifth of India's population is in the adolescent age group of 10-19 years. Unfortunately, the special needs of adolescents particularly adolescent girls are rarely addressed by the educational, health, and family welfare programs in India. We are planning to provide life skill, sexuality and supplementary education for 1000 adolescent girls. That would help them learn about their rights, continue their education, get employment, improve their confidence to make their own decisions.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

One-fifth of India's population is in the adolescent age group. However policies and programs in India have focused very little effort on the adolescent group. Adolescence is shrouded in myths and misconceptions about sexual health and sexuality. In India school systems are ambivalent about imparting sex education. Adolescent girls require the capacity to assert one's right to control one's body and the skills to ensure that one's needs are met and wishes and concerns are respected.

How will this project solve this problem?

We will organize regular weekend workshops on life skill and sexuality education for adolescent girls. They will learn the core life skills like the ability to -Make decisions, solve problems and think critically and creatively, Clarify and analyze values, Communicate, Be assertive and negotiate, Cope with emotion and stress, Feel empathy with others and Be self-aware. They learn reproductive health, gender and development. They also learn computer skills and use internet for further learning.

Potential Long Term Impact

Today's girls are tomorrows women, so these girls grow as empowered women and address the gender issues in the family and community, their children will get proper education and health services. The income of 1000 families will increase because these girls will go for better paid jobs, that means nearly 5000 people will directly benefit. The 100 slums and 24 villages where we are working will benefit because of these 1000 educated girls involvement in the local level community development.
