Through this project, 1440 adolescent boys have been receiving training on MHM-focused CoC Curriculum and 720 male caregivers have been receiving training on MHM-focused Male Caregivers Curriculum. 24 adolescent peer leaders will be developed under the project who will be acting as agent of change maker in the community to ensure the achievement of the project objectives even beyond the project period. The project team also organized Focused Group Discussion (FGD) with selected adolescent boys & male caregivers to find out the existing challenges and way forward. The beneficiaries are also provided with COVID-19 infection, prevention, and control items to support the implementation of Menstrual Health (CoC and male Caregivers). The Menstrual Health Management (MHM) education empowers them to fully participate in society and live a healthy, self-determined life.
