Break the silence
About the Project
Age thirteen to twenty-one is an essential phase of human life, and these years define the future of many people. During this age, children ask different questions about physical and mental changes they observe in themselves. Parents and teachers feel uncomfortable answering these questions and restrict them from asking. Children with limited knowledge and unreliable resources move towards harmful actions. Project Swechha deals with adolescent health education. Team Swechha organizes workshops and creates awareness about menstrual hygiene, myths around menstruation, child sexual exploitation, child marriages, gender equality, and changes teens observe during adolescent age and how to deal with the changes. The awareness program includes a five-day workshop series named Adolescent Health Education Training Program. The workshops are organized on both online and offline mode at different places. The project aims to break the silence and myths behind menstrual hygiene and adolescent health.
