Our goal
To provide awareness on reproductive health to underprivileged adolescent girls from schools
The Challenge

Many adolescent girls in rural areas lack education on sexual and reproductive health

Adolescents are young people in the age group of 10-19 years. As per Census 2011, adolescents comprise nearly one-fifth (20.9%) of India’s total population (253 million). Of the total adolescent population, 11 per cent are in the age group of 10-14 years and nearly 10 per cent are 15-19 years old. They are not trained to face the physical, psychological and intellectual challenges in today's world, along with ensuring their own safety.

Objective of the program is to provide teaching on adolescent health to adolescent girl students in the Government/Government aided schools/rural communities thereby enabling adolescents to practice- Healthy eating habits, improved personal hygiene for girls especially during menstruation & understand sexual health
