Trainings and Workshops

TARSHI conducts trainings on sexuality, sexual and reproductive health and rights and counselling skills, tailor-made to suit the needs of organisations working in the field. An important objective of our trainings is to encourage participants to incorporate concepts of sexuality and rights in their day-to-day work. We conduct trainings in English and Hindi. 

In 2003, we began conducting annual announced trainings. Over the years, we received many requests from different organisations and groups, both nationally and internationally, to conduct trainings for them. To keep up with the pace of emerging demands, we now conduct both, trainings organised by TARSHI and trainings on-demand. Some of the organisations we have conducted trainings for and with are: IPPF (South Asia Region), GFATM (India), Bandhu Social Welfare Society (Dhaka, Bangladesh), Mones (Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia), ARROW (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), Tara Homes (New Delhi, India), Gurgaon Ki Awaaz (Gurgaon, India), HRLN (New Delhi, India), The YP Foundation (New Delhi, India), Jagori (New Delhi, India), AARTH ASTHA (New Delhi, India), Shriram Foundation (Chennai, India), and schools like Presidium and Step by Step, colleges and universities like Delhi University (India),  Tata Institute of Social Sciences (Mumbai, India), Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (India), etc.  To contact us for trainings and workshops, click here.
