Gender programmes

Working towards gender equality

Adolescents aged 12-16 have additional needs and concerns, particularly when it comes to issues related to gender. In slum communities, many of the children have limited resources when it comes to seeking answers about health, hygiene, changes during puberty, safety, gender equality, and healthy interpersonal relationships. To address these issues, we hold monthly meetings that provide a safe, gender-specific space where adolescents can openly talk about their concerns.
