Movement Youth-to-Youth Project


Initiated in Khatauli (Muzaffarnagar), Uttar Pradesh involved over 150 Maulvis (religious teachers) working in 65 Madrasas (Muslim religions schools) to help in providing reproductive health education to adolescents studying in these schools. The students in turn shared their knowledge with out-of-school youth.

The expertise with the Project was used in carrying out the innovation in community settings for the adult population. Facilities like installation of hand pumps, public toilets, literacy centers renewed the confidence of the adult population and enabled community gate keepers to promote reproductive health education through Madrasas.
