The vision of the Empowerment, Health and Sexuality of Adolescents (EHSAS) Program is to enable the health
and wellbeing of adolescents and youth, and transform them into healthy, gender-sensitive and responsible
citizens. In EHSAS we use a combination of four intervention strategies to achieve the objectives:
Group work includes group sessions, training in using theatre and other art forms to explore and understand
sexuality, and building peer counselling skills.
Individual work includes mentorship, counselling, internships and peer support.
Family work includes individual and group awareness and counselling sessions.
Community interventions include awareness campaigns and building networks with local leaders,
organisations, and other community bodies.
EHSAS seeks to cultivate an environment suitable for discussion and acceptance of the problems faced by
adolescents and finding solutions within the community to resolve these problems. We are looking at
