What We Do
TARSHI conducts trainings, both announced and on request on counselling skills, gender, sexuality and rights related issues, tailor-made to suit the needs of organizations and individuals working in the field. We also conduct training of trainers, sessions for teachers and workshops on Burnout Prevention.
TARSHI’s publications on sexuality and rights and related issues, in both English and Hindi, are for diverse audiences including young people, professionals in the field, as well as the general public. While most of the publications are in print form, we also have a ‘talking book’, The Red Book and The Blue Book in DAISY formats for people with print and visual disabilities.
The eLearning course is a virtual platform that aims to address gaps in accurate information caused by a lack of sexuality-related subjects in curricula of professional courses like teacher-training, social work, counselling, psychology, etc.
We conduct various public education activities independently and in partnership with other NGOs to create a broader public understanding about women’s rights, sexuality, sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence through public events, publications, social media, campaigns, sessions in schools and colleges, and our blog In Plainspeak. We frequently put up stalls at public events to bring our work to a larger audience and help initiate conversations on gender and sexuality related issues.
TARSHI's New Delhi based infoline provides information in English and Hindi on a range of topics related to sexual and reproductive health, HIV, contraceptive choices, sexual and gender identities, violence, safety and pleasure.
We take part in campaigns and provide advocacy support to other organizations and as part of networks and coalitions that work towards a common goal of achieving and ensuring human rights for all. We also actively work on the issue of Comprehensive Sexuality Education.
TARSHI works actively in the area of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) and is working towards building a common understanding on the meaning of and the need for CSE in schools.
