Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (Brazil)
TabuTabu and Honduras Child Alliance envision a world where human sexuality is not a taboo, and where all people benefit from sexuality education to empower them to engage in healthy, safe, and respectful relationships, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation.

    In socially vulnerable communities across the world, lack of access to quality sexuality education and limited economic opportunities often engender sexual violence, gender discrimination, and unwanted pregnancies that further propagate the cycle of poverty. These are exactly the type of communities with whom TabuTabu partners to co-create relevant app-based sexuality education programs for children, youth and adults.

    Organized by Anne Fowler, a Canadian woman who does educational and healthcare projects of her own and also partners with HCA, the teams see 400+ children each year! Our HCA volunteers help with scheduling, escorting the children from classes to the clinic, keeping records, assisting the hygienists, and translating for the dentists. It’s a learning experience for sure and we’re thrilled that the dental health in our community has notably improved in the 12 years that the dental teams have been visiting.
