In Spite of the challenges faced due to the ongoing Pandemic, Kolkata Sanved was able to overcome the limitations and conduct online sessions on Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights (SRHR) with the Tribal adolescent girls from the backward remote village in Jharkhand in India, in collaboration with Aahan Foundation, which works closely with the Tribal community. 10 adolescent Tribal girls would come to the Community center for their online SRHR sessions conducted in the month of June & July (when the raging pandemic was under control), keeping all covid protocols in mind.
The sessions focused on topics like body awareness, learning about body parts, differences between gender and gender stressors and also touched upon intersex and transgender issues. This was the 1st time SRHR was conducted in online mode. The DMT practitioners faced several challenges because of internet connectivity issues and power outages in the village. However through improvisation like shifting to WhatsApp video calls, home assignments etc the sessions were conducted successfully.
