Sexuality, rights, and wellbeing - these are central to all people’s lives, but are unfortunately neglected or discussed only in the context of fear or violence. Support TARSHI in contributing to safe, inclusive, and sexuality-affirming spaces for all - where they can feel safe and free from fear to talk about, learn about and/or experience their sexuality and wellbeing.
Talking About Reproductive and Sexual Health Issues (TARSHI) is an NGO based in New Delhi, India. We believe that all people have the right to sexual wellbeing and to a self-affirming and enjoyable sexuality.
TARSHI’s work began in 1996 with a helpline offering information, counselling and referrals on a wide range of sexuality and sexual and reproductive health issues. In over 25 years, we have supported and enabled people's control and agency over their sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing, through trainings, publications, public education, and perspective building. Visit www.tarshi.net to learn more about our work reaching people of all ages, gender and sexual identities, and disability statuses, with information and perspectives to support their journey towards self-affirming sexuality and wellbeing.
25 years since we started our work, sexuality and wellbeing continue to be sensitive, oft-neglected and even taboo topics, and many people still struggle to access information, resources or support on these issues. Your contribution will help us reach more people with important information, and build capacities of service providers around rights-based perspectives and skills on sexual and reproductive health and rights, and wellbeing - including stress management and burnout prevention, topics which have only gained further prominence since the COVID-19 pandemic.
