Strengthening Adolescent Girls with Sex Education


This project will focus on adolescent girls of India to strengthen their lives and build agency through Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) awareness. This project will use a very creative and innovative tool of Dance Movement Therapy to increase access to SRHR information and resources amongst communities who lack access to this information. This project aims to collaborate with 20 civil society and grassroot organisations and impact the lives of 400 girls, over a span of 2 years.

Gender based discrimination and cultural taboos around topics of sexuality prevent many adolescent girls from accessing SRHR information. Lacking this information many young girls find themselves in contexts of risk and vulnerability. Poor menstrual hygiene, unsafe sex, early marriage, early pregnancy and various forms of sexual violence are leading causes of mortality for young girls. Our project enables 400 girls to access this information to ensure their safety and optimal development.


We have attempted to fill the service gap by implementing a curriculum to teach sexual health and body awareness through Dance Movement Therapy (DMT). This curriculum will be implemented in 20 civil society organizations. Through participation in our curriculum, young leaders will emerge as SRHR advocates within their communities. This will enable community-based organizations to access a pool of community-based advocates, should they wish to sustain the service.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable 400 adolescent girls to receive the knowledge they require to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health, thus minimizing exposure to risk and violence. It will train 20 SRHR advocates to make this knowledge accessible within communities. Indirectly the project will reach out to 3000 community members resulting in increased awareness and reduced exposure to risk and vulnerability.
