Gender Orientation of Anganwari Workers (AWWs)
Jagori Rural is working with adolscents girls in 30 villages of Kangra district for the last 3-4 years. Since January 2015, we have started intervention with 10 more Kishori samoohs (AGs Collectives) in Kangra Block.
AWWs are directly responsible to educate AGs on the issues of bodily processes, menustration, personal hygiene and life skills etc. During our meeting with AWWs we found that they have very limited understanding on the aspects of adolscent girls reproductive and sexual health. In order to enhance the understanding on the issues of Gender and Adolscent Reproductive health, Jagori Rural is organizing three day Gender Orientation workshop at TARA from 23 April 2015 . Total 31 AWWs are attending this workshop.
