Millennium Fellowship Project: Sex Education for All (SEFA)
Sex Education For All (SEFA): which focuses on UN Sustainable Development Goal 4: Inclusive and Equitable Quality Education in close alignment with the United Nations Academic Impact: Principle 6 furthering a commitment to encouraging global citizenship through education. We have reached out to adolescents from 9-12th standard in High Schools across India, equipping them with sex education and legal requisites that a child their age should be aware of. From understanding consent, to having the tools to deal with cyber harassment, or making benefits of the mental health act, SEFA aspires to inspire as many students as possible. With as many as 30 people from NUJS on board, Tushmi Udyalak as the Founder, Sushovan Patnaik as the co-founder are also heading the cohort as campus ambassadors of NUJS. We aim to equip the young adults at NUJS with social impact leadership training and skills as provided by UN MCN and UNAI. Social media harassment (IT Act and other related statutes), grooming (minors + consent), IPC Provisions (Outrage of Modesty, Voyeurism, etc.), POCSO and Sex Education topics like STI, pregnancy test, birth control etc have been covered via a Primer by us law-students in this project.
