Sexual Reproductive Health Program
IIRR has designed a sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) program to address problems of sexuality and reproduction among girls. Through this program, girls are organized into clubs to protect themselves from unsafe sex, sexual and gender-based violence, and to know and defend their rights in and out of school. They are empowered with knowledge about sexual and reproductive health and encouraged to impart what they learn to fellow students who are not club
These activities are bringing about a paradigm shift in the way society views and values the girl child. Girls are
sensitized on their right to education and encouraged to claim that right.
Importantly, they will help their mothers to learn about contraceptives and other SRH services.
