TARSHI publications

A lot of written, available material on sexuality is often either too clinical or too sensational for most of us, making it difficult to get the desired information easily. To address this gap, TARSHI has produced a number of resources that are easy to understand and use.

These resources are based on our 25 years of experience and cover gender, sexuality, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, disability, wellbeing, and Comprehensive Sexuality Education, and related issues. Several of them are available in Hindi as well.

They are addressed to a diverse audience that includes young people, parents, concerned adults, researchers, and professionals working in the fields of health, education, gender, sexuality, sexual and reproductive health and rights.

TARSHI produces material that is gender-sensitive, non-heterosexist and affirms respect for all people and their right to sexual wellbeing.
