As a teacher in Guyana’s Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo district, Rachel had identified several issues affecting her community related to sexual and reproductive health and rights. She acquired the knowledge she needed to bring about real change by participating in a series of training sessions held by the Guyana Responsible Parenthood Association’s (GRPA) Rights from the Start project.

The GRPA and its partners provide gender-responsive comprehensive sexuality education. The association recently collaborated with its youth network to train facilitators, community and health workers, peer educators and teachers, like Rachel, about gender-responsive sexuality and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services. Participants, such as Rachel, are now able to use the information they learned to help educate young people in their communities.
