Programmes Empower people

The Programmes Department of the GRPA work has a broad based approach to promoting Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).  We work at multiple levels, with individuals, families, communities, partners and stakeholders to promote an enabling environment where persons are free to access services and live full and healthy lives. 

Our work is done under the following areas:

  • Psycho-social support
  • Information and Education
  • Volunteerism
  • Advocacy
  • Youth

 

The Programmes Department of the GRPA works at multiple levels to conduct education, information and advocacy initiatives to advance SRHR in Guyana. We work across Guyana, building capacity of stakeholders, partners ad communities, to empower and educate them on rights and healthier lifestyles.  

 

 

The GRPA has a Youth Advocacy Movement which comprises a cadre of young people who are working together for the development of themselves and their peers
