Counselling

Adolescence is a critical period for mental, social, and emotional wellbeing and development. During this time, the brain will go through significant developmental changes, creating neural pathways and behaviour patterns that will last later in life. Because their brains are still developing, adolescents are particularly open to the positive influences of youth development strategies, social and emotional learning, and behavioural modelling. But adolescents’ developing brains, along with hormonal changes, make them more prone to depression and sometimes more likely to engage in risky and thrill-seeking behaviours than either younger children or adults. These and other factors underline the importance of meeting the mental, social, and emotional health needs of this age group.

Counselling is an important part of our life and should be available and in reach to all people of all age group. We provide specialised counselling services to adolescents on life coping skills.

Gender and Rights

Gender equality, also known as sexual equality or equality of the sexes, is the state of equal ease of access to resources and opportunities regardless of gender, including economic participation and decision-making; and the state of valuing different behaviours, aspirations and needs equally, regardless of gender.
UNICEF says gender equality “means that women and men, and girls and boys, enjoy the same rights, resources, opportunities and protections. It does not require that girls and boys, or women and men, be the same, or that they be treated exactly alike.

Being a strong advocate of Human Rights we strongly oppose any type of violation in the name of Gender. We provide training and capacity building to understand Gender issues and norms and the rights. We had vast experience of working with #Third Gender and the #LGBTQ community and to support them and the problems faced by them and how to address all those issues faced by them.
At the same time there are lots of myths and misconceptions pertaining to gender that needs to be addressed.
We help people in understanding and addressing Gender Issues and norms.

Chhau Nach & Nukkad Natak

The Chhau nach is an Indian dance form with its origins in East India. It is mainly used to depict Hindu epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata.

We have taken this a step ahead by using this semi classical dance form to spread awareness about the causes and prevention of Malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, Gender Equity, Mother and Child Health, Anaemia and various other social issues.

These dances have been performed in the rural areas of Sraikella and West Singhbhum, as a B.C.C. (Behaviour Change Communication) strategy, to increase awareness about the aforementioned topics.

Nukkad Natak is performed by a group of mostly young people and usually on issues that require awareness and peoples’ attention.

These plays have taken place in a number of areas including villages of Saraikella, East Singhbhum and West Singhbhum districts of Jharkhand.

We have used this technique wisely to spread awareness and convey social messages to the widespread population, while taking the much required help from our friends on the early side of the demographic spectrum.
