Empowered young people on sexuality and rights
This youth-centred programme sees young people, especially girls, young women and young LGBTQI+ people being empowered to make decisions about their sexuality, voice their needs and claim their rights.
The partnership tackles taboos. We focus on these issues and advocate for the rights of these marginalised groups because, based on our robust experience, we can, and because few others do.
We lobby governments to adopt and be accountable for inclusive human-rights based policies and laws which enable young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender justice. Governments must give young people access to comprehensive sexuality education, information and youth-friendly services – including safe abortion – so they can make choices free from stigma, discrimination and violence.
Increasing support for rights
We are part of a vibrant global youth movement transforming gender and power relations by reinforcing positive norms and values. We are unleashing the power of youth, to increase public support for sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as gender justice. The programme strengthens the capacity of young people on advocacy, dealing with anti-rights movements, youth participation and leadership.
Right Here Right Now champions digitalisation and new forms of partnership. Young people can mobilise, hold governments to account and expand civic space online.
