Gender Equity

Our Philosophy

Ensure parity in opportunity, access and control over resources/entitlements irrespective of any gender.

Unbalanced development is inadequate development. Our work revolves around working with young boys and men within a positive fatherhood model, promoting women farmers and working with young adolescent girls towards creating awareness about their sexual and reproductive health and rights.


How We Work

  • Development of a positive fatherhood model through sessions with groups of older & younger men to ensure a gender equitable environment within families
  • Information dissemination and awareness generation regarding sexual and reproductive health through adoption of ‘Peer-to-Peer’ approach
  • Building community trainers as carriers of critical information regarding sexual health and reproductive health rights
  • Increased access to agricultural resources and entitlements through preservation of local knowledge (indigenous seeds, organic fertilizers), trainings & information dissemination
  • Facilitating access to credit and market linkages
  • Facilitating creation of gender neutral equitable spaces in urban and rural schools
  • Working with Third Gender
