Pleasure-based sexuality education for people with disabilities

Grantee Partner: Point of View

Grant type: Strengthening

Priorities: Stigma, Youth

Country: India

Point of View (POV) works on gender, sexuality, technology and disability. They work towards destigmatising SRHR for people with disabilities and provide sex-positive education around sexuality and disability. Through their AmplifyChange project, POV formalised their years of on-ground outreach and digital media campaigning on the topic into a comprehensive SRHR toolkit, Pyaar Plus.

A pleasure-based approach was central to the production of the curriculum as well as engaging the lived experiences of women and girls with disability as part of the development. POV developed the curriculum as a series of booklets to be used as an educational and advocacy tool to engage civil society on the topic of SRHR for people with disabilities. So far, the content has been accessed by over 2,000 people, and there are plans to increase the reach of the booklets through further digital dissemination.

Point of View created a video of testimonies from people with disabilities and their desires
