Beyond the Margins: Empowering Visually Impaired Women Through Comprehensive Sexuality Education

March 22, 2024

In an effort to address the often neglected needs of visually impaired women, Prayatna Nepal, a leading disability rights organization, recently conducted a five-day training program focused on comprehensive sexuality education. Held from March 11 to March 15, 2024, the event aimed to equip visually impaired women from across Nepal with crucial knowledge and skills related to sexuality and reproductive health. By closing the educational and empowerment gap, the program aimed to facilitate informed decision-making and promote autonomy among this marginalized demographic.

The training brought together 22 visually impaired women from diverse regions, ensuring an enriching exchange of ideas. Guided by expert facilitators, participants explored a range of topics, starting with fundamental concepts such as sex, gender, sex identity, and sexual orientation. Through interactive sessions and comprehensive sex education, the program provided a holistic understanding of sexuality tailored to the unique experiences of visually impaired women in Nepal.

Acknowledging the pervasive influence of the internet in modern life, a dedicated session addressed the intersection of internet use and sexuality, offering valuable insights into navigating online spaces safely and responsibly. Discussions also covered relevant issues like disability and sexuality, LGBTIQ rights, and the legal landscape surrounding sexuality, emphasizing the importance of advocacy and awareness-raising efforts.
