LET'S BRIDGE THE GAP IN SEXUAL HEALTH!

Bridging Gaps Program for Educational Institutions

Introduce a positive sexuality education program to your school with the flexibility of tailoring the curriculum to meet your needs!

The Bridging Gaps Program is based on the UN Technical Guidelines for Sexuality Education aiming to help students:

  • Develop a healthy and positive relationship with their sexuality.
  • Provide accessible resources that are rights-based, gender-focused and inclusive.
  • Inform them of the choices that might be at their disposal, making them the agents of their own sexual-emotional health and well being.
  • Provide knowledge pertaining to maintaining social and sexual relationships that are respectful, sensitive to one another’s dignity and autonomy, and are devoid of coercion, violence or discrimination.

Bridging Gaps combines the challenges of sexual and reproductive healthcare among adolescents with the benefits of peer-mentorship.

Your students deserve the best, let’s join hands to bridge the gap!
