Brief Background of the organisation:
This is an NGO which has been working on Sexuality, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights since 1996. It works towards expanding sexual and reproductive choices in people’s lives in an effort to enable them to enjoy lives of dignity, freedom from fear, infection and reproductive and sexual health problems.
It has been running a telephone Helpline since 1996. Some of their other programmes include Public Education (this includes developing sexuality education material for diverse audiences) and Advocacy, The Sexuality and Rights Institute (in collaboration with CREA) and The South and Southeast Asia Resource Centre.
The organization aims to address all people, especially women and young people through its various programmes. It is one of the few NGOs in India that works on sexuality, without restricting it to a disease-prevention, violence against women or sexual minorities’ framework, but rather from an affirmative and rights-based approach.
The main programmes run by the organization are
The Trainings and Institute
Public Education and advocacy services and
The South and South east Asia resource center on Sexuality.
I’m interested in this opportunity.
The experience taught me a lot and really broadened my perspective. GoVolunteerIndia was very supportive the entire time and mixed with its volunteers to ensure that their placement fulfilled their expectation.
