IWHC has supported Creating Resources for Empowerment in Action (CREA), based in Delhi, since 2005. Across its activities, CREA works to break taboos and build leadership by convening academics, activists, and practitioners to discuss issues of women's sexual health and rights. As Neha Sood, CREA Program Coordinator explains, "A core belief at CREA is that women can develop their own solutions to difficult situations, but it is first necessary to develop their leadership capacities."
The renowned Sexuality and Rights Institute (SRI) is convened through the New Leaders, New Voices program. The SRI brings together activists and academics from across India, grounding them in a human rights approach to working on sexual and reproductive health in the country and region. A focus going forward will be to reach groups traditionally not part of the women's rights dialogue, including more young women and non-English speakers. In November 2006, CREA held its first Human Rights Institute in Hindi. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
