Who We Are

We believe that all people have the right to sexual wellbeing and to a self-affirming and enjoyable sexuality.

TARSHI supports and enables people’s control and agency over their sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing, within a human rights framework.

We approach issues of sexuality and wellbeing from an affirmative, rights-based perspective, without restricting ourselves to a disease-prevention or a violence against women or sexual minorities framework.
