Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Shuchona
Shuchona is a Bengali word that means "The Beginning," It is an initiative that works with the sole purpose of mitigating the stigma of sex education persistent in our society. Considering current circumstances, it is reasonable to conclude that the general people, particularly young people, are unfamiliar with fundamental sex education at some point, which leads to an unfavorable course of events. Furthermore, adolescents going through puberty have a difficult time coping with their growth since they lack sufficient education and guidance. Project Shuchona aims to educate the youth as well as the general population with basic knowledge of sex education, personal hygiene, menstruation, healthy physical relationships as well the concept of consent and emotional connection amongst partners. This project-based on SDG 4: Quality Education followed by SDG 3- Good health and well-being, SDG 5- Gender Equality, and SDG 8- Decent Work and Economic Growth. And UNAI: Human Rights For All. Depending on the state of the Corona pandemic, we may be active on both virtual and physical platforms. This project would be conducted into workshops, followed by a QnA session with one of the field's experts. The workshops would follow our Sex-Ed module, well-being, and good health, focusing on basic concepts like reproductive health, personal and menstrual hygiene, emotional connection between partners, healthy physical relationships, etc. In addition to our regular seminars, we will offer one-on-one consultations and logistical help for basic hygiene as needed. We believe that this sector requires immediate attention, and working bit by bit would result in a massive change. We think our project Shuchona would be the beginning of one of the most positive changes in our social and cultural paradigms. With our constant efforts, we hope to spread the initiative nationwide within 24-36 months.
