A word from the organizers:
The YP Foundation (TYPF is a youth led and run non-profit in India that develops young people’s leadership skills to take action on issues that they are passionate about. Founded in 2002, the organization supports young people between the ages of 13 and 28 to conceptualize and implement community based projects that challenge stereotypes, forge sustainable partnerships and promote the uninhibited expression of young people.
As part of our annual Peer Education programme – Project 19: Know Your Body, Know Your Rights at The YP Foundation, we have been working with youth communities on increasing their access to and understanding of information on gender, sexuality and rights.
The project trained a group of 20 peer educators this past year and conducted over 8 open community workshops with young people across Delhi, who are both in and out of school settings, primarily between the ages of 16 and 23 years. The aim was to provide young people with a safe space where they can understand, clarify and articulate their basic sexual and reproductive rights and health.
As a follow up to the peer education process, we are hosting a 2 day intensive workshop on March 19 and 20, 2010 at The American Centre for young people interested in gaining a deeper, stronger understanding of Gender, Sexuality and Rights. No prior experience is required to apply the workshop, however, an interest in the field would be!
Participants from outside Delhi are welcome, however, we would be unable to cover accommodation and travel costs to and from the training. Food during the days of the training will be covered by The YP Foundation.
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to do this in advance, we really do appreciate the help and support!
