Drawing upon their education and extensive experience, Remi plans to trains individuals from various ages, areas and groups on various SRHR topics.
The core objective is to provide comprehensive Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) education to those who are often underserved – particularly individuals from diverse backgrounds, ages, and communities, with a primary focus on trans and queer individuals, migrant workers, refugees, and people with disabilities, who face the most significant barriers to accessing such vital information. Each of these trained individuals will subsequently conduct three sessions, reaching out to up to 20 people per session. This ambitious effort is anticipated to impact approximately 480 individuals, who will gain invaluable insights into their own bodies, facilitated by individuals who share similar life experiences and identities. By fostering such an inclusive and empathetic environment, we aspire to empower each participant and enrich their understanding of SRHR matters. Furthermore, this initiative aspires to plant the seeds for sustained change. The facilitators, now equipped with enhanced skills and tools, will be poised to continue conducting further sessions well into the future. This ripple effect ensures the lasting presence of SRHR education, creating an ongoing cycle of empowerment and knowledge dissemination within the communities they serve.
