Delhi Learning Lab

The initiative aims to help young people in Delhi make informed and responsible decisions
regarding their health and well-being.

Our Approach

At Delhi Learning Lab, we work with a diverse group of young people including people with disabilities to build awareness and agency among young people  so that they are able to advance gender equality in their lives and access the right information, youth-friendly services, and products related to Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights (SRHR) and thus meet their SRH needs

The project on Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) employs an innovative and impactful youth-led engagement model to involve its three crucial stakeholders: Young People in the community, Service Providers, and Community Members (Parents). This dynamic approach ensures a comprehensive and inclusive strategy to address SRH challenges, promote awareness, and drive positive behavior change.

1. Young People in the community: Recognizing the significance of peer-to-peer influence and relatable guidance, the project taps into the energy and creativity of young people. Empowered with knowledge, skills, and tools, a group of enthusiastic youth leaders takes the forefront. These youth leaders are extensively trained on SRH, communication techniques, and leadership skills. They then organize engaging workshops, interactive discussions, and awareness campaigns targeting their peers. This youth-to-youth approach creates a safe space for open dialogue, where young people can ask questions, share concerns, and receive accurate information, free from judgment.

2.    Service Providers: Engaging service providers, including healthcare professionals, ASHAs, ICDS, PHC, Mohalla Clinics, Chemists, and Private Clinics is essential for delivering accurate information and ensuring quality services. The project facilitates regular training sessions for service providers to update their knowledge on SRH, address myths, and enhance their communication skills. Collaborative workshops are organized where youth leaders and service providers share insights, exchange experiences, and co-create effective approaches to delivering SRH services. This cooperation ensures that the  information provided is consistent, up-to-date, and tailored to the needs of young people.

3.    Community Members (Parents)  Recognizing the significant role parents play in shaping young people's attitudes towards SRH, the project involves community members through targeted engagement efforts. Community dialogues, awareness sessions, and parent-focused workshops are organized where youth leaders and service providers collaborate to address parents' concerns and provide them with accurate information. By involving parents in the conversation, the project fosters a supportive environment where parents and youth can openly discuss SRH topics, bridging the generation gap and creating a united front in promoting informed decision-making.

           Through this youth-led engagement model, the project creates a holistic ecosystem where information, support, and dialogue intersect seamlessly. It nurtures a sense of ownership among young people, empowers service providers with updated knowledge, and bridges the understanding between parents and their children. The collaborative efforts of these stakeholders generate a sustainable impact on the community's SRH awareness, access to services, and overall well-being. As a result, the project not only addresses immediate SRH challenges but also lays the foundation for a healthier, more informed, and connected community in the long run.
