What we do
Human rights and sexuality education
We organise trainings for parents and teachers, as well as various activities for children and teenagers conducted by sexuality education experts. It is essential to create a safe and comfortable environment enabling everyone to engage in discussions and boost self-confidence during teachings and activities. The teaching material is all science-based and is catered to different age groups.
It is extremely important for our team to advocate for and communicate about sexuality education. We aim to educate society by publishing articles on sexuality education topics, which get published on our social media and other major media platforms. Likewise, we participate in radio and TV shows and initiate relevant and significant discussions.
Toolkits and other material
Additionally, our organisation develops educational material and writes suggestions/guidance for parents, education specialists, teachers, and students. All this information and material can be found on our website which is accessible and free of charge for everyone.
There are two ongoing sexuality education projects: “Lytiškumo akademija” (“The Academy for Sexuality”) and “Lytiškumo kuprinė” (“Sexuality Backpack"). Both projects ensure the opportunity to conduct trainings for teachers and students in schools across Lithuania. Additionally, we are currently developing a board game which would serve as a sexuality education teaching tool.
