Every young person has to make life-changing decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. However many of them cannot access clear, evidence-based information.
We understand that talking about sex, abortion and related topics can be tricky for educators and parents. The more the world gets connected, the more are the chances of young people getting information from unreliable sources. To make it easy for young people, parents and educators to continue sharing the right sex education we partnered with AMAZE.org to create interesting, informative videos in Hindi language.
We cover five topics through five animation videos:
1. Staying connected safely: cyber safety (Nepali)
The internet can be an amazing place to explore, but it is also good to practice online safety. Some tips include being careful about sharing personal information, reporting anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable online, and getting familiar with privacy settings.
2. Understanding abortion: what are your options? (Nepali)
Abortion is an important sexual and reproductive rights issue. It is an individual choice, and in many countries like India and Nepal it is legal to end a pregnancy.
3. Sexting: what should you do? (Nepali)
Sexting is making sexual images and sharing them using a phone or by posting them online. Use this video to explain the risks of texting to young people and educating them about respectful relationships.
4.Say no to STI stigma (Nepali)
A sexually-transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that is spread through sexual contact. It is preventable. There are many stereotypes about what it takes to get a STI - this video is to sensitize young people about sexually transmitted infections and bust myths about it.
5. Access to sexual health for minors (Nepali)
Sexual health includes many aspects like contraception, information about abortion, STI and HIV detection and treatment. This video explains and encourages young people to understand more about their body, its health and find ways to access sexual health services.
AMAZE envisions a world that recognizes child and adolescent sexual development as natural and healthy, a world in which young people everywhere are supported and affirmed and the adults in their lives communicate openly and honestly with them about puberty, reproduction, relationships, sex and sexuality. In such a world, young people across the globe would have access to the information and support they need to develop into sexually healthy adults. https://amaze.org/what-is-amaze/
