YOUTH KI AWAAZ

ACTION NETWORK

on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights with

 

355 million people - 30% of India's population - menstruate. A 2014 report by Dasra found that nearly 23 million girls drop out of school annually due to lack of proper menstrual hygiene management facilities, which include the availability of sanitary napkins and logical awareness of menstruation. Menstruation, SRHR, and access to menstrual hygiene continue to be major contributors to gender disparity, health risks and environmental damage.

Sexual and reproductive health and rights are key to a dignified, inclusive upbringing for women and girls. An integral part of this is to inform, empower and mobilize young leaders to take on the menstrual health movement to create a safe and gender-just space. Which is where the Youth Ki Awaaz Action Network comes in.

As a part of its 3-day residential bootcamp, you get to learn how to mobilise and organise more young people to join your movement, build a media and public narrative around your issues, create effective and engaging campaigns, as well as create decision-maker engagement that leads to policy impact and action.

If you are eager to address issues around MHM, and want to learn key campaigning, policy action and public narrative building skills, this is an opportunity for you to be a part of a network and amplify your impact.
