I am working here as program officer (Young women Self help group) YWSHG is unique program we have started mobilizing adolescent girls in to YWSHG and currently we have 250000 SHGs. 13 to 21 years girls are the part of the YWSHG.

I would like to formulate training program on Gender and gender based violence. As these girls are the key resource and change makers in society. They are very enthusiastic to work within community for the same i need to formulate programs and activities. It would be great help for me if you could guide me and assist me for the same.

Worm regards.

Hello Punam, 

I find that Save the Children have great resources on these topics. Below I have copied in a link on a very thorough design guide on sexual and reproductive rights and gender program. I hope that this may be useful to you. Please let us know how it goes with your work, I would be very interested to know! 

All the best and good luck!

Hello Aasa 

Thank you so much for sharing this. Will go through it thank you so much again.

Hi Punam,

I work with communities. My personal experience is that teaching, training on gender and raising awareness has very limited results.

We have to hold the space and encourage adolescents to take action. An approach which focuses on strengths called SALT has been very effective in motivating people to change the way they operate.  Read more

Best wishes for your project

Hi Punam, I have experience creating a similar program for adolescent girls in Rajasthan with a local NGO, as well as strong background in GBV. I would love to be of help! Please feel free to contact me. I have also sent you a LinkedIn request.
