The program examines social and cultural understanding of gender concept.Through empowerment, capacity building, awareness and advocacy, we create learning opportunities for the youth and adults on the crucially important role a society and its culture plays in the construction and maintenance of gender norms & sexual practices.
Areas of focus:
Gender, Sexuality & Cultures: examines the makings of masculinity, femininity and sexuality through typical representation of gender in a multicultural society. Sexual & Gender-Based Violence Prevention: focuses on primary prevention; in particular, changing social norms and behaviour through empowerment and intervention programs.
Why do it!
Gender has impact on nearly every aspect of life and plays a role in the most of today’s crucial discussions. Our interdisciplinary training courses prepare youth to examine complex constructions of gender throughout history & time as well as in different cultural context & social processes, so that they can contribute to the conversation.
