One of their major programmes that have been successfully running is the Know Your Body, Know Your Rights Programme. It works with adolescents from 12 to 18 years of age to talk to them about sexuality education and everything that comes under it,
including gender and violence, sex and pleasure, puberty and body image. The KYBKYR programme focuses on the needs of those whom it wishes to serve – what they want to learn, what they want to know. It aims to impart information to the youth in an unreserved manner and empower them to be become more sensitive to their own sexual and health-related needs and rights. The main focus is on these young people’s relationship with their rights.
Volunteering for KYBKYR isn’t just about becoming a peer educator to some of the sweetest kids you will ever meet, but it is also about growing and expanding your own selves. It is an experience that makes one feel happy not despite but because of the tiredness that comes from a full day’s work.
Volunteers learn as much from the kids they talk to as from the trainings they undergo before they become part of the organisation.
Becoming a part of TYPF is also like joining a crazy, dysfunctional family that will guide you through your mistakes as much as it celebrates your successes.
